LIVE MUSIC / PERFORMANCE & AFTER PARTY
@ SOHO HOUSE
Su Lee is an LA-based South Korean musician, visual artist & podcaster originally creating music & videos in her bedroom in Seoul.
The same data that was used to compose the album was interpreted into visuals by Gunther Kleinert (Monotonstereo). Frequency and loudness values of each song were extracted and transformed into vertical lines of different densities, overlayed by hatched blocks that represent the pitches. These digital files were then printed using a pen plotter (a robotic arm that can hold pens), so the same type of digital-to-analog process was used for art as for the music.
Benjamin Wynn (DERU) is an Emmy Award winning American composer, sound designer and music producer.
He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music from the California Institute of the Arts, and has released 4 albums under the name “Deru”, as well as scored television, film, and dance.
Wynn was the co-owner and founder of a music and sound design company in Los Angeles called The Track Team along with Jeremy Zuckerman. Together they worked on numerous projects, including “Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "Legend of Korra” for Nickelodeon. They won an Emmy Award for music editing for “Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness” in 2012, and another Emmy for the same project in 2015.
In 2007, Wynn (as Deru) collaborated with British composer Joby Talbot on the score to Wayne McGregor’s ballet, Genus, based on Charles Darwin’s book, On the Origin of Species, commissioned by the Paris Opera Ballet. The ballet premiered at the Palais Garnier in October 2007 and was commissioned for a second round of performances in November 2009. The ambitious eight-part score combines electronics with a 10-part choir and string instruments. The score is available on Ant-Zen and Dear Oh Dear Records and was featured in the 2009 documentary, La Danse: The Paris Opera Ballet.
In addition to his scoring work, Wynn is a founding member and Creative Director of The Echo Society, a Los Angeles based composer collective and non-profit organization that premiers new orchestral works in singular, one-night-only events.
kodo mezcal project
the kodo mezcal project was born as a collaboration with jed, founder of wolf spirits.
we selected four agave varietals from countless sample batches sourced throughout palenque surrounding oaxaca.
we designed four information labels printed on agave pulp paper, highlighting exact details of production, distillation method & names of mezcaleros in the regions produced.
we're honored to work with an importer who focuses on transparently supporting mezcaleros distilling wild/heirloom varietals of agave with experimental fermentations.
