Events: Machine Project This Weekend

Machine Project (1200 D North Alvarado, Los Angeles, CA 90026, 213-483-8761) has some excellent events scheduled for this weekend. Something for everyone. The Music Learning event on Sunday night intrigues me the most. I am all about participatory music. Music should be an active process, not passively listening to other's music.

From Machine Project Newsletter ...

We have a busy weekend. Friday is a book release party for conceptual housepainter Bernard Brunon, Saturday we have twelve hours straight of music movies, and Sunday we are hosting a Learning Music event that culminates in a performance by all attendees (including you!). Read on for more information, or just stop by and see what happens.

Learning Musicís Music Learning Workshop

John Wood will lead the audience in an interactive lecture, teaching a few pieces of music that will culminate in a massive live performance. Participants are asked to bring a small instrument (especially if you have a small, battery-powered keyboard) for the occasion; members of Learning Music will be on hand to teach and play. We will try to have extra instruments around for anyone who canít bring one. Anyone attending the event should be prepared to participate in group singing, clapping, or easy instrument-playing. No prior experience is required.
