Artists at Noguchi | Bang on a Can Music Series: Yuka C. Honda & Susie Ibarra

Sunday, July 9, 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Yuka C. Honda is a Japanese composer, musician and producer residing in New York City. She is best known for the band Cibo Matto, which she co-founded with Miho Hatori in 1994. Her recent project Revert to Sea, inspired by one of Honda’s favorite books, “Coin Locker Babies,” written by the Japanese writer Ryu Murakami in the 1980s, is a new work in collaboration with Nels Cline (Wilco), Alex Cline, and Zeena Parkins where the musicians showcase the entire spectrum of sound. Susie Ibarra is known for her innovative style and cultural dialogue as a composer, improviser, percussionist and humanitarian. She is interested in the intersection of tradition and avant-garde and how this informs and inspires interdisciplinary art, education and public service. Ibarra creates live and immersive music that explores rhythm, Indigenous practices, and interaction with the natural world.


Presented in partnership with Bang on a Can, this innovative performance series is held in the Museum's outdoor sculpture garden. In case of rain or artist's preference, concerts take place in the galleries.


Performances are free with Museum admission, and seating is available on garden benches and floor mats on a first-come, first-served basis.
