LAB, Honor Fraser's forum for the explorations of the arts community in and outside of the Los Angeles area, and Country Club are pleased to present Dawn Kasper Music for Hoarders. Kasper will perform with several Los Angeles area musicians to create an environment that invokes a sensory experience emulating the compulsive and vulnerable relationship to the collecting and holding on to emotions. Music for Hoarders was created for LAB while Kasper attended the Millay Colony residency program this summer in upstate New York.

Musicians include - Math Bass, Larissa Brantner James, Daniel Brummel, Paul Gelbalm, Nik Haas, Simon Haas, Eric Kim, Kathleen Kim, Yasmine Kittles, Devin McNulty, Giles Miller, Daniela Sea, Jen Smith, Laura Steenberge, Steven Synstelien, and more...

"Music for Hoarders is a 'visual poem' performance action in which I collaborate with a group of musicians to create a structured experimental music composition to invoke the feeling of hoarding human emotions. the music will accompany my performative actions as well as assist in activating my personal movements during the duration of the performance." -- Dawn Kasper Music for Hoarders
