Sonic Meditations

This concert is part of the 13th Dog Star Orchestra. Both an ensemble and a once-a-year festival of experimental music, the Dog Star Orchestra was founded in 2005 by Michael Pisaro as a way of playing recent experimental music by young composers and classic pieces from the experimental tradition. Described as “messily exceptional” by the Los Angeles Times, Dog Star events happen throughout the Los Angeles area and feature offbeat performances in out-of-the-way places, alongside more traditional concert settings. This year’s festival dates are June 3-17. More information at
