Brainchild Part 3 - Kathleen Johnson with Composer Mark So

Brainchild Part 3 - Kathleen Johnson with Composer Mark So.

Mars Desert Research Station, Utah, October 11 and LAXART, Los Angeles, October 25, 2015. Dominique Cox as Brainchild, and Julie Brody, Kate Brown, Mari Garrett, and Gabie Strong as the chorus.

Begun in 2008, Brainchild is Johnson’s nine-part, multi-year fiction and sound project. For each successive part of the sci-fi story, she collaborates with a guest composer who creates a choral work for performance. Johnson’s narrative follows a girl, Brainchild, who discovers the abandoned structures of an ancient civilization, and slowly begins to understand her own strange connection to its builders. 

Finding musicality within the language of the Brainchild text itself, Mark So has created a score for Part 3 comprised solely of the words on the page, arranged in open fields, dense clusters, and single lines to produce what So calls a “native” reading. Image Bill Morrison.

Lady Noise and Friends, Untitled (Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, Oct. 16, 2011)

Washes of white noise, whistling, and breath. The drone of chatter through wind. A melody over takes us, the image/sound of site.

Collated histories of grasses, planes, pumping jacks, and dry lips mingle under a blanket of smog.

A melancholic psychic overload of the hot air indeterminate. Everybody knows this is nowhere.


Commissioned by SASSAS, Lady Noise created a site-specific score from field recordings made at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook site in south Culver City. Working with concepts of wind, breath, and air in the post-industrial sublime of Los Angeles, Lady Noise invited multiple players to join us in an amplified open-air concert.


Untitled (Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, Oct. 16, 2011) featured Lady Noise (Kelly Coats, flute; Kathleen Kim, violin; Gabie Strong, electric bass; and Sandy Yang, electric guitar) with Jesse Appelhans, Aisling Cormack, James Hamblin, Julia Holter, Janet Kim, Stefan Scott Nelson, Ron Russell and Jonathan Silberman.


RED FLAT @ JANM
Omayumi, Steven M Irvin, Alan Nakagawa and LADY NOISE collaborated on a movement and sound work titled RED FLAT.

Drawing from inspiration from the flatness of Los Angeles's marine desert geography and the personal symbolism of the color red, this ensemble of artists generated a sound barrage in response to the question, "What if you could hear everything in LA in one moment?". Circuit bent keyboards and percussion were scattered throughout the perimeter of the staged area in the museum letting the audience improvise with the artists. Special thanks to Clement Hanami for his support. March 12, 2011 at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles California.
