Intrinsic Strings on The Culver Stairs

A transformative, site-specific immersive concert experience will take place throughout the Culver Stairs and the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook on August 24th, 2019 between 6-7.30pm. This free concert event will integrate live orchestral musicians with virtual reality in an exploration of what unites us, empowers us, and creates joy in our lives. Attendees will traverse one of the three paths to the top of the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, while the intrinsic sounds of chamber music is performed alongside the chatter of nature and buzz of the city. Featuring music by LA-based contemporary film and video game composers, Jeff Rona, Penka Kouneva, Drum & Lace, Emer Kinsella, Allyson Newman, and Ben Coria, performers will share their collective insight into how music can act as a vehicle to unite people and create community in large metropolitan areas.

Intrinsic Strings aims to bring awareness to internalized fear and isolation by encouraging Angelenos to find support and solidarity with other members in the community by embracing and conquering the climb together. The Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook has three ways to reach the top: a 0.7 mile, 282 step staircase; a 1.25 mile switchback trail; or a short drive along the overlook's perimeter. Ensembles comprised of string players and select unique instruments will be spread throughout the space creating a "musical trail". Vresh, a 360 social media company, will integrate 360 degree visuals containing story concepts of individuals in Los Angeles overcoming daily obstacles, creating a "trail of stories".

The concert will provide a space to reconnect and rediscover. Come to feel. Come to listen. Come to expand horizons.
