The Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS) transforms Eagle Rock’s Welcome Inn into a venue for live performances, by creating a free, six hour event featuring experimental music originating in Southern California between 1949 and 1977. Micro concerts take place in individual rooms, allowing key moments in sound and music history to be experienced simultaneously and sequentially in a single location. Among the more than one dozen works presented: Bruce Nauman’s Violin Tuned D.E.A.D., Pauline Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations, L.A. Free Music Society’s (LAFMS) Pyramid Headphones, James Tenney’s Postal Pieces, and David Ornette Cherry and poet Kamau Daaood revisiting Something Else, The Music of Ornette Coleman.
