Please join Fantasies in Crystal, Cate Kennan, and lucky dragons for an evening of music at Human Resources on September 15th, 8pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at this link.

Fantasies in Crystal is father/daughter duo John and Erin Schneider, who improvise on pump organ and adapted viola to projections of the microscopic photography of Erin’s grandfather, Robert R. Forrester. Fantasies in Crystal is named after the slideshow that Forrester would show to friends and family during his lifetime.

Cate Kennan is a composer and recording artist from Los Angeles who writes melodic music for synthesizers and other instruments. Her debut album, The Arbitrary Dimension of Dreams, was released by Post Present Medium in 2022. 

An ongoing collaboration between artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck, lucky dragons research forms of participation and dissent, purposefully working towards a better understanding of existing ecologies through performance, publication, recording, and public art. lucky dragons have presented collaborative work in a wide variety of contexts, including REDCAT, LACMA, MOCA and The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, London’s Institute for Contemporary Art, The Kitchen in New York, the 54th Venice Biennale, Documenta 14, The Whitney Museum of American Art (as part of the 2008 Whitney Biennial) and The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others. The name “lucky dragons” is borrowed from a fishing vessel that was caught in the fallout from H-bomb tests in the mid-1950’s, an incident which sparked international outcry and gave birth to the worldwide anti-nuclear movement.
