Of all of the classical instruments, the cello seems to loom largest in the public imagination. Maybe it's because of Yo-Yo Ma, maybe it's because of the Game of Thrones theme, maybe it's because you have to sit down while you're playing it and everybody just wants to take a load off. Whatever the reason, we're here to meet the demand with supply -- and that's why for our next LA Massivemuse, we're bringing along Splntrd Wood -- a brilliant new ensemble built of three cellos and three great cellists to play them.

These cellos don't just sing -- their bodies are played like drums, their tails are whacked like cowbells, and they show just how much can be done when you bring irrepressible new energy to a centuries-old instrument.

Splntrd Wood has put together a program of their own radical arrangements featuring music from around the world: Piazzolla, Jobim, Bernstein, Ginastera, Quincy Jones and more.

If that's not enough: For the second half of the performance the three cellos are joined by another instrument, and it too is a cello. That makes four cellos.

And it's all going down at redCola Studios, a badass Venice-based sound-design studio that's opening its doors to us once again for its second Massivemuse. redCola's sister company, Short Story Collective, a music publishing house, will be cohost for the evening.

It's BYOB and bring-your-own-floor-blanket-or-seat-cushion, because we get cozy like that.
