Rain Cycle explores the sounds of Los Angeles in Spring: the lingering of cool air under sterling sunshine, the heavy thrum of cloud cover, the gusts of wind presaging a storm, the joyous release of a downpour, sunlight breaking through the thunderheads; and finally, the calming of elements when we are returned to Spring. Rain Cycle features the voices of seven Choral Lab singers, including soloists Marisa Esposito (Cloud Cover) and Frank Hobbs (Rainfall).
IN SITU A SOUNDWALK by Jaco Wong
In Situ is a Latin phrase that translates to "on-site". In art, it refers to works made specifically for a host site; meanwhile in biology, it describes the conservation of an endangered species in its natural habitats. As an attempt to satisfy the yearning for in-person aesthetic experiences during the pandemic, strolling around an abandoned zoo could potentially inspire sentiments and curiosity on animal welfare, zoo ethics, and human-nature relationships.
