Doug Aitken: Sleepwalkers Box launch in collaboration
with Princeton Architectural Press and DFA Records
Sunday, April 1, 5–7 PM
The MoMA PS1 Performance Dome
22-25 Jackson Ave. at the intersection of 46th Ave.
Long Island City, NY
For the launch of the multimedia publication Sleepwalkers Box, musical directors Hisham Akira Bharoocha and DFA’s Jonathan Galkin will create a live percussion and electronic score alongside visuals from Doug Aitken’s 2007 MoMA installation, Sleepwalkers, on multiple video projections inside the MoMA PS1 Performance Dome. The performance incorporates prerecorded music from the box soundtrack, which includes unreleased tracks by Broadcast and others. The soundtrack weaves in and out of the live drumming, set to the videos, to create an all-immersive sonic and visual experience. A commemorative poster by the artist and Princeton Architectural Press will be distributed free at the event.
Copies of the signed limited edition (1000) Sleepwalkers Box will be for sale at the event and at www.sleepwalkersbox.com
