JFAK Architects Associate Derek Greene featured in annual 'Unfrozen Music, Architects in Concert'

JFAK Associate Derek Greene will be featured for the fourth year running in the annual Unfrozen Music, a free concert that explores the intersection between music and architecture through classical piano, indie rock, blues and jazz. Five talented musicians and architects from firms across Los Angeles will showcase their musical talents at the event, whose theme is "Home". Donations from the concert will benefit Habitat for Humanity Los Angeles. 

Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"I've been playing piano since I was 9 years old. I look forward to Unfrozen each year, since it is a good way to motivate myself to continue honing in my craft and a way to share a part of me that a lot of people don't always have a chance to see. At this year's Unfrozen, I'm excited to share three pieces that, in some way or another, remind me of either a time or someone special from back home in Chicago," shares Derek.

Saturday October 7th, 7:30pm
Santa Monica Public Library, MLK Auditorium
601 Santa Monica Blvd.
Santa Monica, CA 90401

JFAK Associate Derek Greene was featured for the third year running in the annual Unfrozen Music, a free concert performed by an eclectic mix of Los Angeles area architects. Musicians/architects from firms across Los Angeles explored the intersection between music and architecture through classical piano, indie rock, blues and jazz.

"Structure, form, movement, cadence, light. The overlapping language often used to discuss work in the fields of both music and architecture represents only a prelude to the profoundly intimate duet shared by these two great art forms. Goethe’s assertion that architecture is frozen music goes the farthest by suggesting that in their essence the two are ultimately variations of the same thing," shared Craig Shimahara, of Shimahara Illustration, producer of the event. 

Now in its eighth year, the event took place on the MLK Auditorium stage at the main branch of the Santa Monica Public Library.
