The Joshua Light Festival

by Andreas Hager


The fall season begins with something completely different: The Joshua Light Show will be at NYU's Skirball Center from September 13-16. Since the 1960s, the group has been creating innovative pieces for display at high-profile musuems, including the Whitney, the Tate, and Centre Pompidou. This weekend they will be using their projections, lumia, and liquid light as the foundation for collaboration with some of the most exciting names in contemporary music: Dame Evelyn Glennie and Zeena Parkins (Thursday at 7:30), Terry Riley and Gyan Riley (Friday at 7:30), John Zorn, Lou Reed, Bill Laswell, and Milford Graves (Friday at 10), Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT (Saturday at 7:30 & 10), as well as Debo Band and Forro in the Dark (Sunday at 7:30).
