Nicolas Jaar works From Scratch in New York

Nicolas Jaar works From Scratch in New York Nicolas Jarr will be taking part in a five hour live, multi-discipline performance at New York’s MoMA PS1 next month. From Scratch is presented in collaboration with Clown & Sunset Aesthetics, which is the “interdisciplinary culture house” Jarr runs with filmmaker Noah Kraft. The five hour show will see Will Epstein, Sasha Spielberg and Dave Harrington all collaborate with Jaar musically on stage, although exactly how is not clear. The show also features a dance piece by Lizzie Feidelson and sound & video art from CSA’s resident filmmaker Ryan Staake.

Check out this video from the CSA website. Either Jaar has a supreme sense of irony, or he has not been paying attention to Richie Hawtin‘s more bombastic projects.
