Artists at Noguchi: 75 Dollar Bill @ The Noguchi Museum | New York | United States

Bang on a Can and The Noguchi Museum present the New York-based guitar and percussion duo 75 Dollar Bill, performing their unique blend of sound from Northwest Africa by way of Mississippi and New York No Wave. As 75 Dollar Bill, plywood crate percussionist Rick Brown and guitarist Che Chen make electric, richly patterned music that can shape shift from joyful dance tunes to slowly changing trance minimalism – an uncategorizable hybrid which draws on early electric blues, the modal traditions of West Africa, India, and the Middle East, Sun Ra’s space chords and the minimalist and No Wave histories of their hometown. For this event, the group will present a special set of material conceived with the unique environs of The Noguchi Museum in mind. The performance will take place in The Noguchi Museum’s outdoor sculpture garden. In case of rain, the concert will move to the Museum’s galleries.
