Join us Thursday, December 12th for a deep listening experience with Suburbanoid! Come experience an ambient music and visual performance featuring the new CD “Malibu Fire Sessions”. The audience will have the option to seats, pillows, or yoga mats. “Awesome multimedia performance. Intimate and meditative. Ethereal colored light show and TV-size screen showing nature: forest fire, a raven on a branch, small birds in a bird bath, kittens playing. Jim alternately played on a Steinway and two different guitars. One he made sound like a theremin, the other like a Sitar. Toward the end he sang, including in Italian.” Carol V

Malibu Fire Sessions at BWCA by Suburbanoid & The Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the release of Malibu Fire Sessions, a new album by Suburbanoid. This is the first worldwide release for the Center’s Beato Records label. When composer Suburbanoid , along with his family, were faced with a mandatory evacuation from where they were living and working in Malibu during the 2018 Woolsey Fire, Kevin Wallace, director of the Center, offered to house them at the Art Center. This led to an impromptu artist’s residency. The opportunity to utilize the piano at the Center – a German Steinway custom-made for famed classical pianist Lili Kraus – as well as Wallace’s Korg Synthesizer, led to numerous new compositions.

The show begins at 7:00pm, and there is a $15 suggested donation at the door.
