March 2017 || Infinite Palette residency
at Palm Springs Art Museum

Music by William Brittelle, Missy Mazzoli and Daniel Wohl  
Produced by Kate Nordstrum
Developed in partnership with Palm Springs Art Museum and Desert X

The Infinite Palette residency at Palm Springs Art Museum during the inaugural Desert X featured a fluid, integrated set of music exploring diverse notions of transcendence against the backdrop of the California desert. Focusing on the intersection of experimentalism, meditation, land art and sacred music, the project moved beyond genre constrictions into a world of unique and highly personal musical visions reflective of our complex age. The multi-platform presentation included commissioned video installations created in collaboration with Safety Third Productions and sight-specific auxiliary events.
