Brooklyn Botanic Garden Presents a Liminal Soundbath For the Birds with Alex Somers, Julianna Barwick & Mary Lattimore
June 20, 2022 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM$35 – $40
As part of its summer celebration For the Birds, Brooklyn Botanic Garden will present a special outdoor musical event featuring three luminaries of contemporary music. A Liminal Soundbath for the Birds will take place on the Garden’s famed Cherry Esplanade, as Sigur Rós producer and artist Alex Somers, electronic musician Julianna Barwick, and harpist Mary Lattimore who contributed recordings that can be heard on the “The Birdsong Project” will create a musical landscape that encourages attendees to slow down, focus on their senses, and be present in the moment.
Inspired by birdsong, the three musicians will pull apart one another’s songs, play with how they unravel, and collage them into new arrangements for this special one-off event. For the artists, soundbaths blur the line between live concert and art installation. Attendees are encouraged to bring a mat or towel, find a spot on the grass of Cherry Esplanade, lie back, and soak up the multisensory input.
