The MAK Center in collaboration with the Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS) presented the 2009 sound. concert at the Schindler House.

This performance featured two artists: Seattle-based duo Climax Golden Twins, exacting archivists whose work draws upon old wind-up Victrolas, broken down guitars, field recordings, drones and electro-acoustic manipulations to produce an abstract assemblage of sounds, and Los Angeles native Steve Roden, who works with acoustic objects, old instruments, small electronics and field recordings to create “possible landscapes” focused on the quiet activity of listening. In his performance, Roden also worked with scores generated from Schindler’s architectural drawings of the Kings Road House, along with a heavy dose of improvisation.
