So much has happened since we gathered together last year for our show at the Ace – both for us, personally, and in the world at large.
As a result of this, we’ve spent the last year reflecting on the ever-changing notion of “family,” especially as it relates to the recent fragmentation we’ve felt in our country. In a way, our country feels a lot like a family – we all live under the same roof, and though we may not agree with each other, our lives are tied together.
With this in mind, we’re deeply excited to announce our most intimate and complex experience yet.
ECHO VI: FAMILY will take place on October 20, 21, and 22 at a legendary residence from the Golden Age of Hollywood, nestled atop the hills of Silverlake with breathtaking views of surrounding Los Angeles.
The festival will feature original works by 21 Los Angeles-based composers and special guests exploring the theme of Family. Each evening, 7 different composers will present or perform original works simultaneously in 7 rooms of the house for (mostly) unamplified instruments of their choosing. During each show, guests will be free to explore the rooms inside the estate and discover the various performances as the evening unfolds.
We’ve invited a truly incredible group of guest composers to join us in this undertaking, and we can't wait to share them with you when tickets go on-sale on Thursday, 9/7, at Sid The Cat Presents. (Mark your calendars!)
We’re so glad we get to consider you part of our extended Los Angeles family.
With all of our love,
Ben, Rob, Joe, Brendan, Nathan, Jud, and Jeremy
