Sound Horizon: Byron Westbrook
July 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
Exploring the spaces between live sound and visual art, the long-running music series Sound Horizon moves to the newly reopened Minneapolis Sculpture Garden this summer. Animating the landscape and sculptures with sonic intrigue are three nationally recognized sound artists who transform incidental ambient noises into fascinating soundscapes that reshape our perception of the park’s art and greenery. In case of rain, performances will be moved into the Walker galleries. Performances take place at 6pm, 7pm & 8pm.

Brooklyn-based artist and musician Byron Westbrook has been performing and showing experimental sound work internationally since 2008, and has shared bills with Tony Conrad, Oren Ambarchi, Rhys Chatham, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Eliane Radigue, and Lawrence English, among many others. Westbrook holds an MFA from Bard College, where he studied with Marina Rosenfeld, Marcus Schmickler, and David Behrman. He also worked with Phill Niblock’s Experimental Intermedia Foundation from 2005–2014. Following two well-received releases under the moniker Corridors, his debut LP under his given name—Precipice on Root Strata—was named #4 Best Experimental Album of 2015 by Pitchfork. He is currently visiting faculty in the fine arts department at Pratt Institute.
