Soundwave ((5)): The End of the Beginning
Soundwave ((5)) Humanities Finale Event featuring Volti, Oakland Active Orchestra, and Sqwonk
Soundwave ((5)) Humanities' Finale event will be held in the grand outdoor courtyard at the Legion of Honor. Over 35 musicians and vocalists invite you to a surreal one-of-a-kind experience, coming together to celebrate our human triumphs, acknowledge our tragedies and signal the beginning of a new collective future amongst the Beaux Arts columned courtyard and Rodin's The Thinker overlooking the beginning of the world where the land meets the seas.
Sqwonk, the bass clarinet duo of Jeff Anderle and Jonathan Russell signals The End of The Beginning of our brave new world, as the 15-member experimental Oakland Active Orchestra assembles to deliver a cinamatic score of our lives, while the stunning voices of the 20-member choral ensemble Volti marches in to evoke an explosion of energy, a glimpse into our future in a breathtaking climatic new beginning.
Embodying the ideals of surrealist artist/photographer Man Ray, the event will unfold dreamlike, with choruses and orchestras calling on us all to examine human notions of unity and division, rebellion and conformity, and love and war. In celebration of the Legion's Man Ray | Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism exhibition.
