“...Squash & Biscuit’s evocation of memory is apt and rewards repeat listening through increased awareness of meaning attached to their collection of sounds.”
I Care If You Listen

“Lavender Eggplant gives me this feeling that I’m observing a slice of everyday life that’s been cut, looped on a reel to reel, with heavenly textures and the comfort of human expressions added to it.”

INVISIBLE SOUNDS

Exploring Los Angeles Through Overlooked Sound



Everyday we walk through a vibrant quilt that is the sonic world each of us inhabit. It’s not the same: some have exceptionally loud auditory worlds, others are blessed with a more dulcet existence, and wherever you fall in this spectrum, there is the one thing that catches your attention. The strange way the water drains, a specific tone that resonates each time a machine runs, or just the sound of a simmering pot. These small sounds that attract us are unique, individualized, and evolve over time.

Invisible Sounds briefly sheds light on sounds that are rarely heard or rarely given any attention by asking those who have had time to observe their environment and have listened deeply to their surroundings. From restaurants, to cafes, to malls and senic overlooks, Invisible Sounds showcases small sounds of an average day.

Take time to hear your world and find what attracts you.

Little Tokyo Marketplace




Little Tokyo Marketplace is located in downtown Los Angeles and offers a great selection of produce along with other imported groceries and ingredients for Asian cuisine. There is a large parking garage with roof access which offers a nice view of the city as well as a quiet-but-present soundscape of the surrounding metropolis. The marketplace is located inside a galleria which is far from desolate, but is also not jammed with chains. Instead you have several small shops that benefit from the mall format and an atmosphere that isn't polluted with sound.
