"...at Venice California, I had seen the light show by the "Single Wing Turquoise Bird." Like a thousand modern paintings flowing and sparkling, alive and dynamic, of incredible richness, a death blow to painting in frames, stills."

--Anais Nin, 1968
From The Diary of Anais Nin, Volume 7 (1966-1974), Page 74

Single Wing Turquoise Bird was the most significant light show in Los Angeles from 1967 to 1975, a "collective improvisation performance group" that used film, slide, and liquid projections to marry the artistic possibilities of music, painting, and moving images. SWTB first played behind bands such as Cream, The Velvet Underground, Sly and the Family Stone, Pink Floyd, The Who and The Grateful Dead.  In addition to working in large rock concert venues, the group conducted performances in more intimate spaces such as the Cinematheque 16, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the CMF loft above the Fox Venice Theater. In these smaller venues they were able to expand the range of music they worked with to include recordings by composers such as Steve Reich, Terry Riley, LaMonte Young, Pauline Oliveros, and John Cage.
During the past three years Single Wing Turquoise Bird has re-formed to rehearse, perform, and record new work. Several of the original group, Larry Janss, David Lebrun, Peter Mays, Jeffrey Perkins, and Michael Scroggins are joined by new members Amy Halpern, Shayne Hood, and Mike Pfau.  Their performances are as dynamic and transcendent as ever!  

Performances are Wednesday & Thursday, January 25 and 26, 2012, beginning at 8:30 pm at the Experimental Digital Arts Room in the Broad Arts Center, UCLA.   Admission is $12 general, $7 students/seniors, and free for Filmforum members and UCLA Community (students, faculty & staff).

Single Wing Turquoise Bird is part of the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, which is part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.  Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.  

Los Angeles was a key international birthplace of performance art. Engaging the innovative spirit of that period and LA's vibrant contemporary art scene, the Performance and Public Art Festival will transform Southern California over eleven days (January 19-29, 2012) during Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980.
Featuring more than 30 major performances and large-scale outdoor projects, the festival will include new commissions, reinventions, and restagings inspired by the radical and trailblazing public and performance works that were created by artists during the Pacific Standard Time era. Performances and projects will be located at institutions and sites throughout Southern California, in close proximity to more than two dozen Pacific Standard Time exhibitions. The festival is organized by the Getty Research Institute and LA>
