Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred
Reviews & Ratings
Dubbed “The Maverick Organist” by The New York Times, Cameron Carpenter is known for his intensely personal, often flamboyant performances. A child prodigy, Carpenter performed as a boy soprano in venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center and with pop star Joe Jackson on his 1994 album Night Music. His organ technique is widely regarded as unmatched, and his readings of Chopin’s Ètudes, Op. 10 question the limits of organ technique, particularly when he plays Chopin’s relentless chromatic runs only by his feet. Cameron’s repertoire spans the organ and piano literature, featuring original compositions, film scores (especially from Japanese animé), and improvisations influenced by folk songs, jazz, disco and pop. From his use of color, to the concert clothes and organ shoes he designs (prompting Women’s Wear Daily to nickname him the “organist/runway model”), his approach to the organ can only be described as iconoclastic.
