On May 11th, Doug Aitken’s video piece ‘Song/1’, a 360 degree projection across the face of the Hirshhorn, received a little audio assistance from the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Oneohtrix Point Never, No Age, Geologist, as well as a full choir. The event was definitely a one of a kind audiovisual experience, with the artists playing around 90 minutes combined, incorporating their respective versions of the classic song “I Only Have Eyes for You.” The song was a big part of the video piece itself, which had its audio aspect turned off for the evening for the live performance.
We caught up with Oneohtrix Point Never after the show for his thoughts on the performance and a few other questions. Check the interview below.
