Frosty welcomed conductor/composer Christopher Rountree onto Celsius Drop to open a portal into the world of Fluxus. Rountree is curator of the Fluxus Festival presented by LA Phil. Enjoy this conversation interspersed with recordings of Fluxus material selected by Rountree.
Fluxus was a wily, nebulous – and deeply influential – anti-establishment art movement that emerged in the 1960s. Comprised of an international collective of artists, composers, and poets, Fluxus aimed to collapse what it considered the false wall between art and life. In a survey curated by Christopher Rountree in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute, the often-humorous, frequently challenging music and performances of Fluxus will be presented on and off-site, including an orchestral subscription concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
The LA Phil’s exploration includes a combination of live events, printed materials, and symposia, including surprise appearances, installations and performances throughout the LA Phil’s 2018/19 centennial season. More info and tickets can be found here.
