Would love to attend this at NYU this fall….The Joshua Light Show founded by multimedia artist Joshua White, are perhaps the most legendary visualists of live music.
As resident artists at Bill Graham’s Fillmore East during the late 1960’s, and in performances at Woodstock, Newport Jazz Festival, Tanglewood, Carnegie Hall, and the classic film Midnight Cowboy, White and his cohorts created live, colorful, psychedelic projections behind the great bands of that era including the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and The Who.
On September 14th at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, John Zorn, saxophonist and cultural catalyst has curated the co-operation and collaboration of Lou Reed, (whose experience with light shows includes Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable) features on guitar and electronics, alongside dub apostle/bassist Bill Laswell and free jazz originator, drummer Milford Graves.
