The Santa Monica Public Library is proud to present composer Michael Pisaro on March 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Main Library’s Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium at 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
Pisaro, who teaches in the Composition and Experimental Sound Practices programs at CalArts, will play and discuss his composition “melody, silence” for solo guitar. A member of the Wandelweiser group of composers, whose use of duration and silence has been profoundly influential on contemporary experimental music, Pisaro’s work has been widely performed and recorded. This is a rare opportunity for Westsiders to experience his work live.

The Santa Monica Public Library is the first public library to offer this service to its cardholders.
