NAME THAT TUNE: FRANCES STARK

Friday, February 1, 2019, 7:00pm—9:00pm

In the spirit of the game show that delighted millions of home viewers in the 1950s and 1970s, these live artist interviews are a way to get to know the participants through their interest in music. Name That Tune will challenge the ears and knowledge of select L.A. based artists whose work has an undeniable relationship to noise, sound, and/or popular music. Professor and music critic Josh Kun and curator Hamza Walker will test four artists over four evenings with sounds meant to thrill, confound, provoke, and above all entertain.

Our first contestant is Frances Stark, a Southern California native. While punk is of seminal importance to Stark, her tastes overall prove far more catholic. Her most ambitious project to date was a digital film adaptation of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

This event is free and first come first served.
