Dorian Wood w/ Rattle Rattle Chamber Orchestra + Mariel Carranza
Los Angeles-based avant-garde artist/singer Dorian Wood will perform songs from his recent groundbreaking album, Rattle Rattle, accompanied by a 15-piece chamber orchestra. Each song has been specifically arranged for this intimate, once-in-a-lifetime event, and will be performed without amplification within the walls of the MorYork Gallery, which houses the permanent collection of artist Clare Graham. The evening will kick off with a new work by world-renowned performance artist Mariel Carranza.

BIOS

Los Angeles-based artist DORIAN WOOD is "armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon" (WNYC Culture). A wunderkind with a headstrong DIY discipline, Dorian has brought his emotionally-charged performances to concert halls, museums, music venues and performance spaces throughout the US, Mexico and Europe, with a voice that channels the skill and ferocity of such auteurs as Scott Walker, Nina Simone, Nick Cave and Tom Waits.

Dorian's performative works have been presented at such institutions as REDCAT (Los Angeles), Los Angeles County Museum of Art, UCLA, Highways Performance Space (Santa Monica), Pacific Design Center (West Hollywood), The Stone (New York City), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco) and the Stockholm Fringe Fest (Sweden). Most recently, he released his second studio album, Rattle Rattle, which features over 60 musicians.

-----

At eighteen years of age, MARIEL CARRANZA came to the United States from Lima, PerĂº. Treating her body as material, Carranza works to detach from physical limitations. Her concerns with the transformation of living matter has led her to labor continuously on a number of art works as if tending to a living being. Surrendering to the course the materials take when left unfixed, her sculptural works challenge the notion of time limitations.


Mariel Carranza received her MFA from UCLA. Notable performances include "Lemon Piece" at Performance Art Happening, "Full Nelson" at Del Mar Theater, and "Corners", in which she was confined within the Crazy Space Gallery for nine days, fasting and making the performance space fit her frame of mind by eliminating or altering its corners.
