“The Discovery of Voyager” at the Music Box Village
December 1, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Voyager golden record launch, Blato Zlato in partnership with New Orleans Airlift and other performers will develop a multimedia performance that depicts the discovery of the Voyager record. Using dance, visual projection, sampled sounds, and live musical performance, the artists will tell an abstract story of the alien life forms who discover the record and try to make sense of it—and their “record player” is the Music Box Village itself. The resulting sounds and music will be both foreign and familiar, terrifying and beautiful, and distorted with moments of clarity. With a diverse cast of performers from New Orleans and beyond, the project pays tribute to this ambitious scientific endeavor. Stay tuned for more info.
