The International Association of Synaethetes, Artists, and Scientists is delighted to announce our 2017 events, scheduled for this coming autumn in lovely Los Angeles, California. Our fall events kick off September 22nd 2017 with a fascinating visual art installation at the Building Bridges Art Exchange in sunny Santa Monica, California. Additionally, we will host a concert with savant and synaesthete, Derek Amato on September 23rd, 2017. Derek’s personal story is captivating, and his exquisite piano compositions are sure to enthrall.
IASAS is excited to assist in the production of a dynamic evening of music and dance, developed by IASAS dance curator Appelusa. In collaboration with Portrait XO and friends, this evening of performing arts is a rare opportunity to witness synaesthesia in action. Please join us on October 1st, 2017 at The Actor’s Gang in Culver City, California.
