516 ARTS presents Symphony 505 by composer Christopher Marianetti and dancer/ choreographer Mary Margaret Moore, who create a 'symphony' in which lowrider cars become the instruments of a new music and dance work. As music emanates from the cars' internal sound systems, the cars become like a vehicular orchestra, each car sonically projecting a different part of the whole composition. The drivers maneuver their 'instruments' in a spatial choreography. At the end of the work, the audience is able to play or DJ the cars. Participating car clubs include the Down Low Car Club and La Familia.
