Art of Élan presents
The Ecology of Sound at the San Diego Art Institute
January 30, 7 pm, $10
Pre-Concert Panel Discussion: 6:15 pm
This January, Art of Élan will partner with the San Diego Art Institute (SDAI) to present
The Ecology of Sound: a Collective Exploration of ‘The Language of Things,‘ an evening of music, art and creative experimentation that showcases the wide variety of artistic talent in Southern California and Baja. The concert is inspired by The Language of Things, an interactive sound and video installation by U.S./Mexico – based multimedia artist Roberto Romero-Molina. The evening explores the idea of communal art and creativity as a dynamic cycle of cultural exchange, not only connecting performers with composers, listeners with viewers, teachers with students, but also fostering conversation between citizens on both sides of the border.

For this special collaborative event, original compositions by students and alumni of Art of Élan’s Young Artists in Harmony apprenticeship program will be featured alongside the world-premiere of Petal by Petal, Leaf by Leaf, a new work by UCSD faculty member and internationally-acclaimed composer Lei Liang. All are invited to attend a pre-concert panel with the artist, performers, and composers, moderated by musicologist Charissa Noble. Following the concert, guests are encouraged to experience the rich sensory world of video and sound of Romero-Molina’s installation, The Language of Things, as well as the other exhibitions on display in the gallery space.

Art of Élan’s 11th season Musical Pathways is focused on the transformative ability of music and the arts to bring people together to release the imagination and offer renewed vision and hope. Beginning with a focus on youth empowerment with concerts and workshops in partnership with A Reason To Survive (ARTS) and Bravo International Music Academy, Art of Élan’s concert season includes programs at the San Diego Museum of Art, the San Diego Art Institute, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCASD) and Bread and Salt in Barrio Logan. Art of Élan’s bi-national initiatives include the commissioning of Tijuana-based composer Andrés Martín to write a work for NOW Ensemble (Art of Élan’s ensemble-in-residence) that will be premiered in both San Diego and Tijuana in May of 2018.
