Nicolas Jaar

Nicolas Jaar is currently on tour in Europe, and will return home to NYC on February 3 to play a MHOW show, which is now sold out. Two days later, he'll play a Pitchfork-presented event called "From Scratch" at MoMA PS1 (2/5) in Long Island City. Pitchfork writes:

"From Scratch" will premiere a new five-hour, multidisciplinary performance from Jaar, with musical collaborators Will Epstein, Dave Harrington (Jaar's partner in Darkside), and Sasha Spielberg. It will include a movement piece by Lizzie Feidelson, and sound-derived video art from CSA's filmmaker-in-residence, Ryan Staake of Pomp & Clout.

The event is free with admission to MoMA PS1, and it looks like this:
