The Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Join Spectrum as Thurston Moore, co-founder of Sonic Youth, performs live in front of a projection of Street, a video by British-born artist James Nares that features Moore's original music.
Over the course of a week in September 2011, Nares—a New Yorker since 1974—recorded sixteen hours of footage of people on the streets of Manhattan from a moving car. He then greatly slowed his source material, editing down the results to one hour of steady, continuous motion and scoring it with music for a twelve-string guitar composed and performed by Moore. Nares's video forms the centerpiece of the exhibition Street, on view at the Museum through May 27, 2013.
A reception in the Great Hall with complimentary refreshments precedes this one-time-only musical and visual experience.
