I've wanted to go to this museum since it opened and this seems like the perfect night to check it out.
Every third Thursday of the month, PAMM brings together an eclectic range of internationally-acclaimed DJs and musicians for an outdoor music series on the terrace by the bay.
This month, PAMM Presents Los Angeles-based producer and artist Total Freedom.
Total Freedom by Christelle de Castro, 2012
Adventurous, often confrontational but always playful, a DJ set from LA's producer and artist Ashland Mines, aka Total Freedom, draws listeners into a whirlwind of ever-evolving texture and sensation. Unafraid to assault crowds with jarring shifts in mood and tempo, in his hands, R&B-concrète collides with rap, grime and ballroom house, while sung vocals abruptly dissolve into swamps of syrupy, dragged-out noise swells. As akin to real-time sonic collage as typical dance music DJing, Mines' free-associative approach places recognizable hip hop and R&B glimpses within abrasive, rhythmically distorting sonic space, making the familiar thrillingly unfamiliar. Alongside LA friends and contemporaries like Nguzunguzu, Kingdom and Arca, he's poised among the vanguard of a vibrant, still evolving new aesthetic in club music. Mines has presented sound installation and performance work around the world for institutions such as MOCA, The New Museum, LACMA, the Whitney, Carnegie Museum of Art, MCA Chicago, and Tate Modern.
The series is free with museum admission, and all galleries are open throughout the evening. Food and drink specials are available for purchase.
Self-parking on-site as available ($2/hour) / Metromover: Museum Park station / Valet $20 starting at 4pm
