Join the Fallen Fruit Collective and friends at LACMA on Sunday, November 7th, for the finale of their residency series EAT LACMA. See chewing carolers, a tomato fight, a year’s worth of plates assembled into a mandala that disappears into the crowd, and a watermelon eating contest. Hear about the mystery of the knife, fork and spoon, watch Salome seduce her lover through the language of food, sample the food served to prisoners in California jails, and even eat the museum itself.

We’ll be there with an electric melon drum circle, where you can:

1) build your own contact microphone
2) combine your mic with a melon to make an amplified melon
3) join our amplified electric melon drum circle
4) eat your melon when you’re done.

All participants will receive free soldering materials and one small melon, but we have limited quantities so get there early! No advanced registration required. Drum circle or previous electric melon experience also not required.
