Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, The Curve
  • Pin It

Managing to resist all the jokes about ‘godspeed you! black emperor’ or Lou Reed’s ‘Transformer’, we’re pleased to announce Thurston Moore’s new solo record…. OK, so we couldn’t resist it, but eerily good are this flock of Australian native zebra finches at creating a sonic soundscape that even Lee Ranaldo would be proud of. It’s all part of trained musician, turned artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s forthcoming installation for the Barbican… a walk-though aviary furnished with electric guitars and other instruments will provide a perpetual live soundscape that may well be a match for any ‘fledgling’ post-rock star (sorry, it’s the weekend). Showing from 27th February to 23rd May, The Curve is one of those art events that just demand your attention…..

Big shout out to our friend @lukeunabomber for the heads up on this one….
