Part chamber orchestra, part new music ensemble. Part avant-garde performance art organization...and part: other. wild Up is a group of young musicians from Los Angeles that like to make music together.
“LA’s most exciting and relevant group of young musicians…their pure energy threatened to change physical states without notice.” - Out West Arts
“Exhilarating.” - Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
"Polymorphously Effervescent" - Out West Arts
About the Project: We are working on putting out our recording of Shostakovich and Rzewski. The music was recorded live at the Jensen Rec. Center Studio in Echo Park -- it's noisy, raw, unedited, live and our intention is: alive. We're releasing "The Salt of the Earth" on limited edition / numbered vinyl, and digital download.
We'd love it if you'd be a part of this. The project consists of covering the costs of: recording, performance and mixing. Licensing, cover-art, and pressing 250 copies of signed and numbed vinyl. It's a giant project, and we'd love your help!
“Whether or not wild Up is the future is for the future to know. But this much is certain: It works. If I ran the school district, I'd hire this collective to propagandize for classical music to every high school in the city.”
