National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announces recipients for arts projects.
Landmarks is excited to launch Listening with Landmarks, a digital initiative featuring playlists curated by prominent musicians, composers, radio personalities, and others from the Austin music scene. Inspired by works from the Landmarks collection, the playlists cut across musical categories to include genres such as opera, Tejano, rock, reggae and country. Two playlists will be released every month and will be available on Landmarks’ website, social media channels, and on Spotify.
Music series will be held every Sunday night in James Turrell’s The Color Inside
Landmarks is looking for an Assistant to the Director and James Turrell Skyspace Gallery Attendants (UT students) — application details inside.
Earlier this year, Landmarks launched Songs in the Skyspace, a new music series hosted inside James Turrell’s Skyspace The Color Inside. The series features a variety of performers from campus and community, including Austin Classical Guitar. For their first performance, ACG commissioned Austin-based composer Matthew Lyons to write a piece in response to The Color Inside. The work was premiered on 24 November and an encore performance will be held on 15 December.
We recently sat down with Matthew Lyons to learn more about his process and his composition for the Skyspace.
