Infinite Palette and Palm Springs Art Museum present

Spiritual America
New electro-acoustic art songs by William Brittelle, Missy Mazzoli and Daniel Wohl

Wednesday March 1st & Friday March 3, 2017* 
Ace Hotel after party with guest DJ Helado Negro

Developed in partnership with the Palm Springs Art Museum and Desert X, this program includes a fluid, integrated set of music that is both boundary-less and overtly emotional. Spiritual America explores diverse notions of transcendence against the backdrop of the stunning California desert. Focusing on the intersection of experimentalism, meditation, land art and sacred music, the project seeks to move beyond genre constrictions into a world of unique and highly personal musical visions reflective of our complex age. The presentation will feature world premiere pieces and arrangements performed by a hand-picked group of top post-genre multi-instrumentalists (including Eliza Bagg, Matt Cook, Ben Cassorla, Michi Wiancko, Paul Wiancko and Scott Worthington), as well as new video installations and sight-specific auxiliary events.

* Full schedule of events:
March 1 - 5:30pm Chino Canyon music + architecture reception (VIP ticket holders only)
March 2 - 6pm pop up micro-concert by Eliza Bagg in PSAM gallery
March 3 - 10am desert walk in conjunction with Wildlands Conservancy and Desert X (VIP ticket holders only)
