9 BEET STRETCH / MUSIC OF THE SPHERES
  • July 28, 2013 - 11:45am

Incorporating Scandinavian sound artist Leif Inge's mind-bending 9 Beet Stretch as the sound score (Beethoven's 9th symphony stretched to 24 hours with no pitch distortion), a series of special performance events will be scattered throughout the museum building and grounds, with contributing artists offering up works related to the ancient idea of the "Music of the Spheres." During the 24 hours of music, various dancers/companies/artists will come and go, presenting a variety of visual offerings to be surrounded by this extraordinary music.
