LA architects will demonstrate their musical chops once again at Unfrozen Music, a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity that takes place tonight at Santa Monica Main Library (see details below). Sam Lubell, editor of the California edition of the Architects Newspaper (and a guest on last month’s DnA) will emcee, and if last year’s debut event is anything to go by, when architects, including Alice Kimm and Doris Sung, transformed themselves for the evening into a convincing cast of indie rockers, concert pianists and jazz musicians, this is well worth attending.

As Unfrozen Music’s executive director, Craig Shimahara, told Bustler.net, “Architects are passionate people, and that passion often pours out through multiple channels of expression.” said . “After listening to an architect play a violin solo, it’s fun to imagine what kind of buildings he or she might design.” The name of the concert paraphrases the famous quote, “I consider architecture frozen music,”attributed by some to the nineteenth century German theorist, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
