Contemporary sound-based artists transform your MCA experience on a select day of the month with custom soundtracks reflecting their perspective of works on view in the museum.
DJ sets and bands occupy spaces in the museum as the building itself amplifies their sound constructions. For this Soundtrack, Daniel Lamar & The Storytellers perform original arrangements in response to Enter the Mirror.
Originating in African American communities in the 1950s, soul music is defined by its roots in rhythm and blues and gospel. Soul music has transcended the times by being one of the most popular ways to paint pictures through lyrics, spirit, and soul’s freedom of expression. Lamar brings all these elements together while adding his own flare, with hints of funk, to tell his side of the story through song and soul.
This Soundtrack is organized by Otez Gary, Community Engagement Manager, with the Community Engagement team.
