William Basinski and Grouper are paired in the dome for an afternoon of ethereal ambient drone soundscapes. Basinski performs his recent tape-loop delay composition, “Cascade/The Deluge”, synced to projected visuals. He is joined by Grouper, the hauntingly dreamy solo project of artist Liz Harris, who performs an entirely new set of music in collaboration with filmmaker Paul Clipson, accompanying her music with a 16mm video projection made especially for this performance.

Broadcast live by Boiler Room.

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and film, the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.

Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator; Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant; Taja Cheek, Curatorial Assistant; Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer; and Lucy Lie, Production Assistant.
