Sonic Scenery

The Natural History Museum in Los Angeles invites you to bring your iPod to a new audio exhibit called Sonic Scenery. The museum commissioned music from Autolux, Jon Hassell, Ozomatli, The Sun Ra Arkestra, David J, Matmos, Stephen Hartke, Nobody, Languis, and Nels Cline.

Each artist created music for a different gallery. Together, it works as "a museum soundtrack". Museum visitors can download the music in advance from i-tunes for $9.99 for their iPod or rent both audio equipment and the music for $3.00 at the museum.

Sonic Scenery runs February 3rd through May 3rd. February 3rd in particular all sorts of nifty entertainment is planned, with sets by Jon Hassell, Matmos, Languis, and others.

"The Mysterious Bog People" exhibit opens March 26th, and that also sounds pretty nifty.

Tunes not from the Sonic Scenery exhibit:

Autolux - Sugarless (from Future Perfect)

Jon Hassell - Before And After Charm (La Notte) (from OHM: The Early Gurus of Electronic Music)

Ozomatli - (Who Discovered) America? (from Street Signs)

A few MP3s by Languis are available for free download at his label's site. I'm partial to "Pieces of Objects".
