Yes. Here at MASS MoCA we are literally built on contradictions. I mean…Come on people, we are a contemporary art museum that used to be an old factory!
…And we have quite possibly the ONLY exhibition in the world that combines elements of North Adams, MA with Jamaica.
On Saturday, April 23, MASS MoCA will be housing yet another contradiction!
Ladies and gents, we are here to introduce to you: THE SHANGHAI RESTORATION PROJECT!
TSRP mixes traditional Chinese instruments with hip-hop and electronic music for an exhilarating juxtaposition. TSRP blends musical elements from the East and West.
Supplying its audiences with danceable, evocative, traditional, and innovative compilations TSRP’s music will accompany a virtual tour of the Shanghai created by some of the best existing filmmakers.
The Shanghai Restoration Project combines a number of different sounds such as classical piano and Chinese instruments, echoes of children playing, the noises of building houses, and impressive synth-work while exploring mixed-media using song and film. Join us in Club-B10 to discover new music and hear something DIFFERENT!
