Watch Now: Nathan Hall: Year Exploder 4/14/2021 @ NOON


This variant is currently sold out.

Please fill in the form below if you'd like to be notified when it becomes available.

Artist Nathan Hall takes apart his audio installation Soundscape 2020 piece by piece, to tell the story of how it was made. Based loosely on the style of the podcast and Netflix documentary series Song Exploder which deconstructs popular music, this program will deconstruct Nathan's audio installation currently on view at MCA Denver. 

Soundscape 2020 tells the story of the year 2020 through audio clips, from nightly howls for frontline healthcare workers in March, to the Black Lives Matter protests of June and July, to the election of November. Nathan will take virtual visitors on a tour of his work and bring together his collaborators for a discussion of this audio diary and a reflection of the year that was 2020.


This event will be livestreamed at the listed time on YouTube, but will be available to watch on-demand any time after it begins.


If you have the means, please consider contributing $5-$15 to your ticket purchase. (We would normally charge $10 for this event if it were taking place in person.) Just hit the “Pay What You Want” dropdown to select a ticket price.
