Where: High Line at the Rail Yards, on the High Line at West 30th St. & 12th Ave.
When: September 22-24, free, 6:00
Why: Virginia-born, New York-based artist Kevin Beasley has been roaming the High Line for months, recording sounds of traffic, insects, construction, and other aural vibrations. On September 22, 23, and 24 at 6:00, Beasley, who staged I Want My Spot Back at MoMA in 2012, will perform a composition based on these found sounds, taking place at the open-air Twelfth Avenue Overlook on the High Line at Thirtieth St. In addition to layering his prerecorded sounds, he will add a recording of each show to the next performance.
