Rolling Ryot and The Color Inside



Rolling Ryot and Landmarks have partnered to bring you a multi-sensory, immersive sound experience inspired by the James Turrell Skyspace The Color Inside. Composers use Shepard tones–an auditory effect that fools the human ear into hearing perpetually rising or falling tones–to complement the visual effects witnessed through the blending of natural and synthetic light during the sunset light sequence in the Skyspace.

Join Rolling Ryot and Landmarks for three performances of the hour-long show.

Wednesday, 26 September – Friday, 28 September: 6:45-8:15. Reservations required. Email with your preferred date.
