On Saturday, April 13, the Resonance Collective, led by CalArts alum Fahad Siadat (Music DMA 18), presents 4 for 20 with Daniel Corral (Music MFA 14) at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. The installation, inspired by the eternal ringing of bells during a midnight Mass in a Tuscan hamlet, offers a meditation on sound and time through the harmonious play of just-intonation chimes.

4 for 20 features four musicians engaging in a contemplative exploration of the physicality of sound, utilizing a 20-note set of chimes tuned in just intonation. This arrangement allows for a mesmerizing interplay of harmonic relations and polyrhythms, each connected to the chimes’ frequencies.

Born and raised in Eagle River, Alaska, Corral is a Filipino American composer who draws upon a rich tapestry of influences in his work. His creative output is informed by media theorist Marshall McLuhan’s definition of art as “exact information of how to rearrange one’s psyche in order to anticipate the next blow from our own extended faculties.”

A former faculty member of The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts, Corral’s commissioned work has been presented at venues such as BAM’s Next Wave Festival, Sundance Film Festival, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, MOCA Los Angeles, and Göteborg Art Sound Festival, to name a few. His accolades include recognition as a Cultural Trailblazer by the city of Los Angeles in 2019 and an Individual Master Artist Grant in 2022.

The Resonance Collective, known for its commitment to performance as a catalyst for personal and spiritual transformation, has produced groundbreaking interdisciplinary theatrical pieces, emphasizing the interconnectedness of creators, performers, and audiences.
