SONG1 evolves into a live performance, May 11th at the Hirshhorn Museum

Doug Aitken’s audio/visual integration project, a “360-degree convex-screen cinema” featuring music by Beck, James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem), Devendra Banhart, Lisa Papineau and many more. At the installation, covers of the pop standard “I Only Have Eyes for You” by these musicians are accompanied by visuals displayed along the sides the museum. Today, the museum announced a concert featuring artists involved in the project on May 11th at the Hirshhorn. So far announced are Nicolas Jaar, Oneohtrix Point Never, No Age, and High Places, but more are to be announced in the coming days (here’s hoping for Beck). Tickets can be bought here.
