Linear Bells’ I Can Dream

Linear Bells' I Can Dream

Linear Bells is the musical alias for David Teboul. The musician lives part time in Los Angeles and in Nantes, France and recently released a new nine track LP–I Can Dream–of beautifully ambient stretches of sound that he created while in Los Angeles this past Winter. It is a sprawling nine tracks that each have a quiet life of their own. It’s a beautiful, concentrated listen that is easily this year’s There Is No Teenage Love.

The Active Apperatus and Liminal Landscapes

The Active Apperatus and Liminal Landscapes 1

Refik Anadol is one of those artists whose brain is running faster than his hands can make. Actually, it isn’t just his hand that can’t keep up: it’s technology, too. He’s one of those artists whose work is so tied to sciences and mathematics that explaining his process and what goes into making work sounds a lot like building an experiment. His interactive, video based pieces are beautiful projections that have the ability to warp space and toy with how you perceive space. Anadol’s work is positioned at the center of a triangle composed of technological experiments, immersive art, and light and space tricks.

Anadol’s work is currently the subject of a solo show at Young Projects. It’s held in their Project Space, which the artist has transformed into a dark, geometric Cave of Wonders. The show–The Active Apperatus and Liminal Landscapes–is one that is made to make you feel something, providing an almost hallucinatory environment for you to get lost in.

Travis MIllard For The Hundreds

Travis MIllard For The Hundreds 1

If you’ve driven North on Fairfax for the past few weeks, you will have noticed Travis Millard‘s work is featured on a billboard overlooking the Fairfax District. It’s some bones and skateboard parts done in his style and with the brand name “The Hundreds” written below it: the piece was obviously a hint at an upcoming collaboration…and it was! The artist teamed up with the brand to create a handful of looks that interprets The Hundred’s explosive, cool street style through Millard’s often hysterical hand-drawn aesthetic.

Prairie Hysteria: Almond Grove! (That Pioneer Karaoke Musical Formerly Known As Something Else)

Prairie Hysteria Almond Grove! That Pioneer Karaoke Musical Formerly Known As Something Else

How many times have I been to see a theatre piece in Los Angeles? I could probably count the times on one hand. This of course excludes shows at Upright Citizens Brigade or Groundlings as those are less shows and more of strung along make’em’ups. Shows that have been rehearsed for months and that run on talent and clever creativity, ones that take a dedicated group of people to accomplish: those are the shows I’m talking about. We had shared a little interview with theatrical director Dane Whitlock a few weeks back about his upcoming show Little House On The Prairie-Oke Almond Grove! (That Pioneer Karaoke Musical Formerly Known As Something Else). We anticipated the show to be quite a good time–but we did not expect it to be an absolutely uproarious, energetic, laugh-until-you-cry kind of show. This is something you’re going to want to see.
