What Must the Hummingbird See

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21 at 8 PM

What Must the Hummingbird See? is a multimedia song cycle about a backyard in Echo Park where skunks, possums, hawks and cats manage to thrive. Written and performed by singer Weba Garretson and guitarist Ralph Gorodetsky, the music reflects a multitude of influences – from Avant pop, folk, noisy punk, opera and jazz. The songs examine the complex relationship between the urban individual and the urban wildlife that surrounds us. The multimedia component of the show includes home videos, shadow puppets and pen and ink illustrations. Edited, modified, and layered, the videos of animals featured in the songs (dead bees, slugs, hummingbirds, hawks) are projected directly onto the walls of the performance space creating an immersive experience.
