Sounds Modern presents Electric EARth: music to celebrate the art of Doug Aitken, in the auditorium at the Modern on Saturday, June 10 at 2 pm. Sounds Modern celebrates the multiple, shifting, and technically mediated perspectives of Aitken’s art with music by Crumb, Cage, Xenakis, and others that places the listener in a variety of imaginary worlds. From the deep ocean to the center of a charcoal fire, travel with us deep inside the sound worlds of the Electric EARth.
