In conjunction with the installation of Wolfgang Laib’s Pollen from Hazelnut in the Museum’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, join PopRally for a performance by London-born, Los Angeles–based sonic artist Mileece, who presents "live generative music" integrated with compositions from her forthcoming album. This lush, harmonious music combines unique compositions with Mileece’s self-developed concept of "aesthetic sonification": a real-time synthesis of sounds from the bio-electric emissions of plants and handmade gestural instruments. The performance combines live cello; wildlife recordings and soundscapes from Mileece’s travels in Canada, Costa Rica, and other locales; and live visuals generated by plants, along with other video material.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Performance begins promptly at 8:00 p.m., with a cocktail reception to follow. Guests are invited to view Wolfgang Laib’s Pollen from Hazelnut during the reception, which also features a DJ set by Maria Chavez.

Wilder Quarterly is a publication for people enthralled by the natural world. Published seasonally for this generation of growers and the next, Wilder presents ‘life through the lens of the growing world’ – indoors and out, culture, travel, food and design.

Tickets ($16 in advance, $18 at the door) are available online.
