David Bowie - Five Years | PBS Programs

Monk Space continues to attract the top production talent for the most innovative and important shows in the world. Yesterday, a production team from BBC Worldwide Americas shot a sequel to its Bowie documentary, Five Years, at Monk Space. I cannot reveal the names of the stars who showed up in limos, but let's say some famous musicians and producers made their through our humble gateway yesterday. Space for the rest of autumn is filling up fast. Be sure to book Monk Space today. http://www.pbs.org/program/david-bowie-five-years/

With unique access to David Bowie’s personal archive of costumes, set designs, lyrics and memorabilia, this film explores five seminal years across Bowie’s extensive career, with each year illustrating not only the source of his inspiration, but also where those ideas led him.

Dear Friends: Monk Space will soon be adding pre and post production services out of our gorgeously redesigned upstairs offices, which includes a conference room with elegant conference tables, chairs, large screen TV and more. The conference room is the perfect setting for script readings, script review, script consultations, small screenings for press, financiers and other VIPs, intimate auditions, or meetings of all kinds. If interested, give us a shout.

Tuesday, 16 February: Cold Blue Music

Returning to our usual venue and day of the week, [email protected] Space welcomes the new music record label Cold Blue Music to present an evening of music for harp, piano, and strings by composers Peter Garland, Michael Jon Fink, Michael Byron, and Jim Fox, performed by Aron Kallay, Derek Stein, members of the Lyris Quartet, Tasha Smith Godinez, and Michael Jon Fink. The concert will include World, U.S., and West Coast premieres.


About the Label:
Cold Blue Music was founded in the early 1980s and quickly became known for its focus on certain West-Coast strains of Minimalism and Post-Minimalism. Although it initially lasted for only a few years, in that short time it left its mark on the California new music scene. And when the company was revived in the early 2000s, its reputation continued to grow. Prioritizing quality over quantity, Cold Blue is dedicated to cultivating music that is deeply rooted in the West Coast’s heritage of musical experimentation.

Music ensembles Hocket and Sakura bathe Monk Space in an acoustical glow

Big news today. Monk Space is featured in the Los Angeles Times. You may remember that it was the L.A. Times that launched Monk Magazine to fame back in 1987. Now, they've graciously done us the favor again. As Times reviewer Mark Swed wrote, "The gallery on the outskirts of Koreatown is home to the monthly [email protected], curated by pianist Aron Kallay and now in its third season. The focus is on local young composers and performers, but not provincially. Monk Space is quickly becoming an essential place for anyone who wants to keep up." Yes, the underground, radical alternative spirit of Monk Magazine lives right here in L.A., my friends at Monk Space. Last Tuesday was dueling toy pianos. What do you have in mind? Let us help you manifest it. Go to www.monkspace.com to learn more. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-hocket-sakura-review-20151015-column.html

If you monitor the New York arts press, you will quickly understand that Los Angeles is hot. The coast-to-coast current has changed course: young painters, writers and musicians are flocking here.

15 Great Things to Do in Koreatown

When the Monks first settled in LA's Koreatown back in 1997 to work on the Frommer's Mad Monks' Guide to California - and soon after begin our two-year stint as the main content providers to Playboy.com - people wondered why the two of us (long considered, with all appropriate humility, among the more cutting edge travel writers in the world) would decide upon K-Town. Especially when there were so many other trendy, cool places to settle down (from Venice to Bushwick to NE Portland to the sketchier parts of SF, Oakland, Seattle, Philly, DC, London, Copenhagen and Berlin). We chose Koreatown because it had the hallmarks that made a place genuinely Monk: a lack of self-consciousness that it was anything special, authenticity, an unabashed funkiness, the right mix of disorder and decay, surprisingly historic yet with a low cost of living, a nice mix of upscale and downscale, and just that "what the heck is this?!!" vibe that made a place defiantly indefinable and worth exploring for years to come. Almost 20 years since, Koreatown continues to surprise us, infuriate us, and blow our minds. Now, the mainstream media have finally seen the light. Come visit MonkSpace someday and let us show you around the strangest, now hippest, neighborhood in all of LA (if not America). http://www.laweekly.com/arts/15-great-things-to-do-in-koreatown-5113357

We dubbed Koreatown America's hippest neighborhood back in 2012, and it's shown no sign of slowing down. It has L.A.'s best karaoke, of course, and the Line Hotel, with Roy Choi's various restaurants, is a must-visit. But as we discovered while researching our Best of L.A. issue, the neighborhood al…

MONK SPACE - Film Production Warehouse and Event Venue

Monk Space was established in 2007 as a full service FILM PRODUCTION WAREHOUSE and EVENT VENUE in the center of LA. Located on the edge of Koreatown, convenient to all freeways, we are an adaptive use space housed in a 95 year-old brick building with tons of character and history. When renting from us you have the option of booking one of two stages, or book all access to the entire ground floor facility. STAGE ONE, our warehouse, has distressed brick walls, concrete floors, a skylight, two shuttered windows, tall ceilings and load in through a pedestrian alley from the street. This includes adjacent production rooms and courtyard which all have their own unique looks and functionality. STAGE TWO, our Annex, has a restored 1920s vintage wall, more exposed brick, wood plank walls, a hallway and a roll up door for easy load in.

Monk Space isn’t just about our building. It is about EXPRESSING YOUR VISION! Let us help you make it happen! We promise to make your booking a productive, hassle-free success! CONTACT US to discuss your needs at 213.925.8562.
