The Annie Gosfield Project

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The Annie Gosfield Project brings one of New York City's most daring composers to Los Angeles for a week of events, culminating in a concert of strings, samplers and stray signals on Saturday, October 2nd.  Not to be missed!

Brought to you by In Frequency and People Inside Electronics -- two of LA's newest and most ambitious concert series, working together for the first time.  Funded in part through Meet The Composer's MetLife Creative Connections program.
