The Academy will celebrate the music of Los Angeles with a month-long program of events from conversations with creative trailblazers to concerts and club nights showcasing the sound of the city.

The festival will feature the world premieres of a technicolor new direction from St. Vincent, one of music’s brightest voices; the world’s largest synth orchestra by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda, with help from 100 powerful car sound systems and their owners; and a new audio-visual show from shapeshifting producer Arca in collaboration with TaranAllen.

Electro and hip-hop innovators Uncle Jam’s Army that includes Egyptian Lover and Arabian Prince will perform after a conversation with Ice-T.

Dâm-Funk will record the October edition of his monthly radio show Glydezone live in front of a studio audience.

Legendary mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, who famously worked on Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Prince’s Purple Rain will be there along with Sylvia Masey who wrote the book Recording Unhinged.
