Music for Restaurants for Museums

A LACMA performance by Yann Novak

20130510-yann

Back in 2010, for much of the year, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art ran an exhibit titled Let Them Eat LACMA, curated by Fallen Fruit. Food served as a means to sift through the museum’s massive collection, and LACMA engaged artists to produce new work. Among them was Yann Novak, who on the final day of the exhibit, November 7, was among 50 artists who descended on LACMA for a festival. Novak’s piece, a 20-minute music performance, was done in coordination with Robert Crouch and Sublamp. Under the rubric of Music for Restaurants, he played a lush background tone, like a bell ringing in slow motion.

There is a short bit of video from the event at youtube.com:
