"All For the Birds": Live Soundscape in Response to
Testing Testing

Sunday, 22 November, 2:00-3:00 PM

Free and open to the public.

Sound-artist and composer MGL returns to the Ackland this month to present an immersive in-gallery performance. Installed with his thrifted pump organ in the midst of the exhibition, MGL will add a temporary, experimental, improvised soundscape to the galleries. The new musical motifs will respond to the works on view and recall his recent collaborative piece with choreographer Maura Garcia.

Testing Testing and its accompanying programs are made possible by the generous support of The John and Mary P. Redwine Charitable Trust, James Keith (JK) Brown and Eric Diefenbach, The Seymour and Carol Levin Foundation, WUNC 91.5 - North Carolina Public Radio, and Zog's Art Bar.
