Myrmyr Turrell @ the De Young Museum

Featuring acoustic performances by Myrmyr (violin, cello, voice, objects)

Green Sound (part of festival) moves to the de Young for this special performance part of “Cultural Encounters: Friday Nights at the de Young”.

Nestled inside a grass-covered hill in de Young’s Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden is world-renowned artist James Turell’s installation “Three Gems”.

This “skyspace,” is a subterranean installation that features a view of the sky altered by L.E.D. lighting effects, and highlights changing light and weather conditions outside.

During this event, contemporary experimental music duo Myrmyr (cello, violin, objects, voice) will create acoustic compositions in and around “Three Gems”, using no electrical power and only the resonance created by the sculpture to amplify and reflect Turrell’s work.

Note: This special performance takes place in the Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden – Entrance off the de Young café. “Three Gems” entrance is on the far right side of the garden (facing out from the de Young café).
