September 12
In celebration of their 15th Anniversary, 
Australian music label Room40 will 
present performances by Lawrence English, 
John Chantler, Steve Roden, and film 
projections by Paul Clipson. 
Lawrence English, who founded the label, 
is a composer, media artist and curator 
based in Australia. He investigates the 
politics of perception to create works 
that ask audiences to become 
aware of that which exists at the 
edge of perception. UK based artist
 John Chantleruses technology to 
exploit the inner zones of audible 
electricity, exploring texture 
and dimension with a relentless 
ferocity. Paul Clipson is a 
filmmaker who often collaborates 
with sound artists and musicians 
on films, live performances, and 
installations. His Super 8 and 
16mm films aim to bring to light 
subconscious visual preoccupations 
that reveal themselves while 
working in a stream of consciousness 
manner, responding to and conversing 
with the temporal qualities of musical 
composition and live performance. Steve Roden
is a visual and sound artist from Los Angeles. Roden’s
 working process uses various forms of specific 
notation and translates them through self 
invented systems into scores, 
which then influence the 
process of painting, drawing, sculpture, 
and composition.

September 13
Resonant Forms will conclude 
with a series of performances 
organized in collaboration with 
LACE Assistant Director Shoghig Halajian. 
For the closing night of both the festival and 
Esparza’s i have never 
been here before, these artists 
will explore notions of race, 
identity and belonging in 
response to the installation. 
Rafa Esparza is a multidisciplinary 
artist whose work ranges in medium from 
installation, sculpture to 
drawing, painting, and most 
predominantly live performance. 
Woven into his many bodies 
of work are his interests in 
history, personal narratives, 
and kinship. Raquel Gutiérrez is 
a film actor, curator, publisher, 
playwright, arts administrator, 
and community organizer. 
She writes about art, culture, 
music, film, performance and 
community building and creates 
original solo and ensemble 
performance compositions.
 Nikki Darling is 
a third generation Angelino 
on her father’s side and 
Neomexicano on her mother’s. 
She is a feminist, womanist, 
transcendentalist, Unitarian Universalist. 
She believes in Henry David 
Thoreau, Elizabeth 
Taylor, Gloria Anzaldua, 
and Joseph Campbell. She believes 
in people, and she believes in you.

September 13 Workshop
The beauty of field recording 
is that it can happen anywhere. 
This September, join Lawrence 
English as he casts his ears 
towards Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood Blvd. 
is one of the iconic visual landmarks
 of the city, and it also happens to 
contain a diverse sound world. 
Join us as we explore various 
“sound locations” in the 
neighborhood, collect 
recordings, share techniques/methods 
and discuss the ways in which field 
recordings can be used in 
sound art and music practices.

Resonant Forms is made possible 
by the generous support of
