The Oral History of Female Drummers
FREE with museum admission @ 3 PM
A live drum performance spread throughout MoMA PS1’s floors engaging in a call and response with one another. The beats are passed along from drummer to drummer via a beatboxer who visits each woman and re-interprets her respective beat. The performers play on painted drum heads with sticks by the artist Itta. With each strike on the drum head they are chipping away at their own histories.
Performers include Tom Tom Magazine founder/editor Mindy Abovitz, and musicians Kristin Mueller (of The Caulfield Sisters, Lucinda Black Bear, Christy & Emily) and Sean Desiree (of Bell’s Roar), Chloe Saavedra (Chaos Chaos, Smoosh), and award winning beatboxer Ashley “Say Wut?!” Moyer.
I.U.D. performance to follow at 4 pm.
