  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Her studio is in her home which is reminiscent of the quaint houses seen in the bay area.  Upon entering I was immediately drawn to the tranquility of the space where dozens of paintings filled her studio walls. Using [...]

Ben Jackel works mainly with clay in what would seem to be a mold process, but surprisingly is done mostly by hand and lathe.  The sculptures Jackel creates are often tributes to family members passed, even though you would never think of that by just looking at them; including pieces like the fire hydrants that [...]

I first met Warren Neidich in New York in the mid-1990s and I was thrilled to find out that he’s in LA in a studio near the new Culver City metro station. As usual with Warren, he is working with a variety of media and on multiple ventures at once. He shared a number of[...]
