Panda Bear aka Noah Lennox, front man and founding member of Indie Rock royalty Animal Collective, premieres his forthcoming new LP, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper (Domino) in a one-off concert event presented and broadcast live by Boiler Room.

Featuring new material alongside heralded classics from Person Pitch, 2007, and Tomboy, 2011, Panda Bear is accompanied by a unique reproduction of visual art collaborator Danny Perez‘s tour video display.

An international cultural platform, Boiler Room has transitioned from underground streaming service to global online music portal. This event marks their debut broadcast from within MoMA PS1’s iconic geodesic dome as part of Sunday Sessions.

The full broadcast is available to stream online for those unable to attend.

Sunday Sessions is a weekly presentation of performance, moving images, dance, music, and discursive programs. Its mission is to embrace live arts as an integral aspect of contemporary practice and ask how art forms, which unfold in the here and now, produce specific ways of thinking and useful means to engage with the broader world. Every Sunday different artists, curators, thinkers and a range of other cultural agents are invited to share their latest projects and ideas with the MoMA PS1 audience.

Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator with Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer.

Sunday Sessions 2014-15 is dedicated to Mike Skinner, 1974-2014
