About the Project

Sed, developed by REDCAT, is a series of sixteen sound works by artists Dorian Wood and Carmina Escobar that connect and engage the various Art Rise sites across Los Angeles. Each composition starts as a vocal drone of sustained sounds and notes sung by Wood and Escobar before a specially-programmed algorithm, created in collaboration with Juan Sebastián Lach, triggers other vocal gestures recorded by the pair, creating an emergent sound piece. As audiences move among the Art Rise installations, Sed will be experienced as a soundtrack and companion meant to reduce the sense of isolation caused by the pandemic, represented by voices expressing the innate need to sing together (like our need to find water in order to survive). Sed, the Spanish word for thirst, includes an original video installation on view at REDCAT. Intercutting footage of Wood and Escobar performing with images of faces, locations and community, the work is viewable daily after dusk from the street at REDCAT.

WE RISE honors the profound contribution of Tongva Elder and WE RISE artist Julia Bogany who passed away March 28, 2021 in Los Angeles. We uplift her voice as an incredible leader who used arts and culture to educate, elevate and build community.

“We, the Indigenous People, the Traditional Caretakers of this landscape are the direct descendants of the First People who formed our lands, our worlds during creation time. We have always been here. Our Ancestors prepared and became the landscapes and worlds for the coming of humans with order, knowledge and gifts embedded in the landscape. Our Ancestors imbued us, who now live here, with the responsibility and obligations of our original instructions as told to us in our creation stories. We are guided by protocol and etiquette to be part of, take care of, and ensure the welfare of the NATURE, the extended family and community defined in its most inclusive expression. We pass those teachings and responsibilities onto our children, grandchildren and many generations to come.”

- Julia Bogany. October, 2020.
