Sculpture sings and sound takes shape as the visual (instruments, sculpture) and the aural (sonic landscapes, jazz, found sound) are layered in conceptual confluence. An ear freshener and eye opener, the day is inspired by the Walker’s 1980 New Music America festival and the trajectory of jazz experimentation at the Walker. International artists—including Matana Roberts, Craig Taborn and Camille Norment, Walter Kitundu, Tarek Atoui, Haroon Mirza, Philip Blackburn, and others—perform in auditory and visual accord with the audience. This free marathon of new music performances begins at 12 noon and ends at 10 pm.
