      Video Walk of Walt Disney Concert Hall by Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller

      Using an iPad Mini and pair of headphones, Thought Experiments in F# Minor leads its audiences along a route through Walt Disney Concert Hall, revealing an imagined world hiding in plain sight.

      Created by acclaimed multi-media artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller and featuring Los Angeles Philharmonic musicians, Thought Experiments asks viewers to follow a film recorded in the past along the same route they are traversing in the present. Made using binaural microphones, which create a three-dimensional sound experience, and edited to create a sense of continuous motion, the fictional world of the film blends seamlessly with the reality of the architecture and body in motion. The perceptive confusion is deepened by Cardiff's hypnotic voice and dream-like narrative elements.

      This 40-minute video walk will be available during the same hours as the Music Center's self-guided tour of Walt Disney Concert Hall. Please consult the Music Center tour schedule for days and times:

      The video walk begins in the Grand Avenue Lobby of Walt Disney Concert Hall.
      Recommended for ages 10 and up.
