DESCRIPTION

L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA: FERMENT[cheese]

Friday, April 29 (Doors 5 p.m., Tasting 6–9 p.m.) Performance and presentation, 7:30 p.m.)

Programmed by Mark Allen

FERMENT[cheese] is a multimedia performance/presentation/tasting exploring milk's leap into immortality. The evening will feature a milk-to-cheese tasting accompanied by field recordings of cows eating grass, curd draining, cheese aging, and an oral history with local dairyman, John Taverna. Within this environment, Los Angeles–based sound artist Chris Kallmyer will create site-specific and dispersed soundworks with the experimental ensemble TempWerks. Sue Conley, cofounder of the renowned Cowgirl Creamery, will speak about the art of cheese making, and the sustainable qualities of artisan and farmstead agriculture. Through an immersive sound environment, we invite visitors to more fully experience the fermented arts. FERMENT[cheese] is a collaboration between Conley and Kallmyer, who is Curator of Sound Programming at Machine Project.
