Closing Performance + Reception
May 22, 2019
Remember the days when friends would come together to hear new music at listening parties? Our closing performance will reference those intimate gatherings and present a new performance by the duo Matmos. Matmos is known for composing accessible music out of a vivid palette of sounds, and their new album Plastic Anniversary is no exception. It considers the political dimensions of plastics, and is produced of sounds generated by materials as disparate as police riot shields, plastic bags, and medical synthetics.
Join us for a closing celebration of MediaLive 2019, in which Matmos will present a sonic and visual array of plastics in a virtual concert, mailed to the museum via snail mail as a means for the group to participate in the festival while taking the environmental concerns of travel into consideration.
