“THE SCHOENBERG SOUNDWAYS”

March 2-7
USC Campus
Los Angeles, CA

A Visions and Voices Arts and Humanities Initiative project.

Installation view of commemorative plaque at Ramo Recital Hall, USC Campus.

“The Schoenberg Soundways” was a dissemination of Arnold Schoenberg’s work presented through multiple formats and venues seventeen years after the Schoenberg Archives were moved from University of Southern California, Los Angeles, to Vienna, Austria. The project ran from March 2 through 7, 2015.

“The Schoenberg Soundways” embodied intermittent audio emissions of five compositions that played as the mobile exhibition. Each composition were ‘performed’ by five USC Hospitality Vehicles, as they deliver services and goods throughout the USC campus. A bronze plaque, containing a quote from Schoenberg represents a commemorative gesture that was installed on the grounds of the Thornton Music School. The project included an evening of presentations and concerts at the Ramo Recital Hall including a lecture by Paul Chaikin, followed by Aron Kallay performing Schoenberg’s Drei Klavierstucke, Opus 11. Karen Dreyfus led the Thornton School of Music Ensemble for the performance of “Verklarte Nacht.”
