The series was organized in collaboration with PopRally, MoMA’s cross-departmental committee that programs events at MoMA and MoMA PS1.
Tonight's Musical Performance: Computer Magic
Danielle “Danz” Johnson, vocals, keyboards, composition; Chris Egan, bass, Ignacio Rivas Bixio, drums
Computer Magic is the project of the New York–based producer Danielle “Danz” Johnson. After taking a break from DJing in New York City a few years ago, she moved in with her mom in Tampa, Florida. There she began experimenting with sounds, garnering inspiration from 1970s sci-fi films, which formed the genesis of Computer Magic. The style that resulted is bright electronic pop, with warm and wistful vocals over simple yet sturdy beats. Johnson has since toured with Chris Egan (Solange, Blood Orange, Turing Machine), and released seven EPs worldwide and two full-length records in Japan. She is currently working on a full-length Computer Magic record with producer Claudius Mittendorfer.
Snacks and Beverages in the Garden
Seasonal snacks, chef’s choice small plates, and specialty cocktails, draft beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages are available for purchase in the Sculpture Garden on Thursday nights. The Garden Bar, located at the northeast corner of the Sculpture Garden, also sells savory and sweet treats, including locally made gelato, sorbetto, homemade desserts, wine, beer, and specialty cocktails. In the event of rain, bars will be closed.
