About Earthquake Quartet #1
Earthquake Quartet #1 by Dr Andy Michael is a concept piece that starts by describing the earthquake cycle in which plate motions build up strain until it is suddenly released during earthquakes. The latter part of the piece is based on the idea that society and culture, including music, takes place with the earthquakes as an often ignored backdrop. However, the geologic processes are an instrinsic part of our existence and ignoring them can have its consequences. Listeners may recognize that one theme from the second section is a rhythmically distorted quote from the Allemande of Bach’s second “Suite for Unaccompanied Cello” which is then further inverted and modified. The quartet is an outgrowth of a lecture, “The Music of Earthquakes,” that mixes performance and lecture, music and science, acoustic instruments and computer generated sounds in an exploration of the relationship between music and seismology. A musician controls the source of the sound and the path it travels through their instrument in order to make sound waves that we hear as music. An earthquake is the source of waves that travel along a path through the earth until reaching us as shaking. It is almost as if the earth is a musician and people, including seismologists, are the audience who must try to understand what the music means. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/music/

About LAMoves
LAMoves asks the community to explore what will happen when a 7.8 quake hits downtown Los Angeles. The project uses cultural practice to engage the community in this question in order to encourage earthquake awareness and preparedness. The community driven initiative incorporates the tools of social mediation, emergency services, and community response. Key event elements showcase disaster education, temporary relief shelter design, and an earthquake shake table controlled by real-time reported Californian seismic activity. http://lamoves.org/
