About Dog Star Orchestra
Dog Star Orchestra is an ensemble and a once-a-year festival of experimental music, started in 2005 by composer Michael Pisaro as a way of playing recent experimental music by young composers and classic pieces from the experimental tradition. Described as “messily exceptional” by the Los Angeles Times, Dog Star events happen throughout the Los Angeles area and often feature offbeat performances in out-of-the-way places, alongside more traditional concert settings. Dog Star Orchestra is one of the main presenters fostering and documenting the strong local experimental music scene, as well as presenting work that would otherwise not be heard in the U.S.
