When interviewing musicians, one of my favorite questions to ask is always in regard to their favorite sounds outside the conventional realm of music. For composer Nico Muhly, who seems to always be in transit, he told me that his dream large-scale project would be a “big piece of civic music-making”—to redo all the “alert sounds of New York. I would do all the airports, Penn Station, subway stations—I want to do all that shit.” And when it comes to all those sounds we hear so frequently in  everyday life that our conscious mind may not always even be aware of, it seems Muhly isn’t the only one with a passion for such. And recently, we’ve learned that musician James Murphy has been working to re-imagine the sounds of the New York subway stations himself.

Actually, I’m a big softie and that’s why I’m covered in tattoos, everything is because I’m actually quite scared of everything. The point is that I’m naturally a quite fearful person, okay? … That’s what I trade on anyway, so I don’t go around all the time getting angry. It’s because I’m a sweetheart. I want everyone to love me.

The first in a three part video series featuring James Turrell speaking with Doug Aitken has just been posted. In this installment, Turrell and Aitken discuss perception in relation to Turrell’s installation Aten Reign (2013) at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. 

The video was made as part of Aitken’s Station to Station project, a three week train tour in September throughout the U.S. For more information on the dates, visit: Station to Station.

In case you missed this a few weeks ago. Stay tuned for information on the next two videos, coming soon.
