Soundtrack: Bonita Appleblunt Mammalian Diving Reflex Public Program

Free With Admission

Contemporary sound-based artists transform your MCA experience on a select day of the month with custom soundtracks reflecting their perspective of works on view in the museum. DJ sets and bands occupy spaces in the museum as the building itself amplifies their sound constructions.

This Soundtrack is organized by Otez Gary, Curatorial Assistant, with the Performance and Public Practice team.
