Landmarks’ Deputy Director Kathleen Brady Stimpert came to Studio 1A to announce the launch of Songs in the Skyspace, a new music series to be held inside a signature work from Landmarks’ collection, The Color Inside, a Skyspace by James Turrell. Beginning September 15, the program will run on Sunday evenings during the sunset light sequence and will feature musicians from The University of Texas at Austin as well as those from the greater community.
Upcoming performers include several university a cappella groups and various guitarists from Austin Classical Guitar and Butler School of Music. Cutting across genres, the music will range from standards and classical compositions to indie rock and even popular Bollywood songs. The performances will activate the Skyspace in new and unexpected ways and provide a sound component to Turrell’s elegant light sequence. Organized as informal gatherings, attendees may come and go throughout the performances, which will include both polished recitals as well as in-process rehearsals.
