‘It’s All About Vibration’ when Rachael Worby and MUSE/IQUE continue their Uncorked series at Art Center College of Design. She will be joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, crossover cellist Matt Haimovitz and Steven Colbert’s favorite Caltech physicist Sean Carroll on Monday, November 12, 2012.

Thoughtfully and creatively curated by Worby, the program, featuring the music of Bach, Coltrane, Vivaldi, Hendrix and The Beatles, offers MUSE/IQUE aficionados another extraordinary evening of unique musical discovery and exploration.

As the bassist for Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flea has earned praise for his brilliant bass guitar technique and audacious musical style. Rolling Stone‘s readers named him No. 2 on their “Top Ten Bassists of All Time” list. He’s joined supergroups featuring Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn and other rock superstars and co-founded the Silverlake Conservatory of Music.

A trend-setter who’s been instrumental in breaking down barriers between classical and pop, jazz and rock music, cellist Matt Haimovitz debuted as a soloist at age 13 with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic, and has since performed on some of the world’s great stages, including Carnegie Hall, while also playing at coffeehouses and clubs. Flea and Haimovitz team to explore the depth, inventive power, and all the possibilities of string performance. And Prize-Winning scientist and author Carroll will rap about String Theory – the idea that vibration is at the center of all life and more.

In addition to amazing music, this walking event begins with a stroll through Art Center’s cutting-edge galleries and student work spaces at a pre-concert reception with wine, mingling and tours.

“Matt Haimovitz inspires me to think differently. Flea’s musical flair is electric; Sean Carroll blows my mind,” exclaims Worby. “Every time I step onto the Art Center campus, I am in the midst of creativity. This is the kind of mash-up we dreamt we could create when we started MUSE/IQUE.”

“It’s All About Vibration” begins at 7 p.m., with the performance starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $60. Call 626-539-7085 or visit www.muse-ique.com. Tickets are also available through OvationTix – 866-811-4111.
