Son Lux

Son Lux Hunter Center

MASS MoCA’s 25th Anniversary Community Celebration concludes with a performance by the Academy Award® and BAFTA-nominated band Son Lux, a groundbreaking trio with deep ties to the museum whose wildly inventive sound embraces influences from iconoclastic artists in soul, hip-hop, and experimental improvisation. Founded by Ryan Lott as a solo project and now featuring fellow sonic travelers and co-conspirators Ian Chang and Rafiq Bhatia, the band traces its connections to MASS MoCA to its first performance in 2009 through an exquisite Audio After Hours gallery soundtrack, multiple residencies and performances by its members with other projects, and a future large-scale installation collaboration currently in development. Their raw emotional intimacy and meticulous electronic constructions feel cinematic, futuristic, and atmospheric — qualities on full display in their recent score to the Academy Award®-winning film Everything Everywhere All at Once (the soundtrack album features collaborations with the likes of Mitski, David Byrne, and Moses Sumney). Join the party as Son Lux helps launch us into the next 25 years!
