wild Up is a modern music collective; a Los Angeles-based group of musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. wild Up believes that music is a catalyst for shared experiences, and that a concert venue is a place to challenge, excite and ignite a community of listeners. wild Up has been called the “Best in Classical Music 2015” and “…a raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant…fun-loving, exceptionally virtuosic family” by Zachary Woolfe of the New York Times.
Two one-week residencies over the 2016-17 season. The first will feature works by Ellen Reid and Jodi Landau, the second will feature work by Julia Holter and the group’s own production, “Future Folk,” which explores the music from Ancient India, modern California, post-war New York, and from American composers that envision a future form of music rooted in a folk ethos.
IN THE ARTIST’S WORDS:
“Space is a huge commodity, and a rarity for us. We live in a nomadic city (LA) and having a home, even for a week, and even in a city that’s not our city — it does something wonderful for our ability to make work. And to make great work. We’re so thrilled to have a home at National Sawdust this week.”
