The National to Play "Sorrow" for 6 Hours Straight at MoMA PS1
New York City’s MoMA PS1 will celebrate their last “Sunday Sessions” of this season with a special piece by Ragnar Kjartansson. For the work—which is entitled A Lot of Sorrow—the Icelandic artist has enlisted The National to perform their song “Sorrow” repeatedly in a six-hour live loop. Kjartansson hopes that the repetitive performance will produce “sculptural presence within sound”.
The event will take place next Sunday, May 5 from 12-6pm at the MoMA PS1 VW Dome. Due to limited space, attendees will only be allowed to watch the band for a few minutes at a time, but they will also be able to hear the music in the courtyard. Tickets to A Lot of Sorrow are now on sale for $15.
