Closing Performance for Yes, there will be singing
This Saturday, join us for a closing performance for Diana Thater's Offsite exhibition Yes, there will be singing. Mark Lightcap, a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Sierra Madre, California, will give a live performance inside the installation which will be live streamed on the exhibition page.
Mark Lightcap is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Sierra Madre, California. A founding member of the bands Acetone, Dick Slessig, and The Ecstasy Of Gold, he is also a frequent collaborator with producer/Dub Club founder Tom Chasteen, and has worked extensively with the electronic duo Matmos. He has performed and/or recorded with a wildly diverse group of artists including Marshall Allen, Mike Kelley, Spiritualized, Hope Sandoval, Mamadou Kelly, and The Kronos Quartet. Along with Randy Hostetler, he was one of the founders of the Living Room Series, a collective of fellow CalArts alumni which in 1992 presented Los Angeles’ first live performance of Erik Satie’s 1893 durational masterpiece Vexations. He often performs on instruments of his own design and construction, and is considered one of today’s foremost practitioners of simultaneous Tuba/Guitar playing.
This project was made possible in part by the Art + Technology Lab at LACMA.
