Watch the entirety of artist Doug Aitken’s public art project “SONG 1”— featuring performances from Nicolas Jaar, Oneohtrix Point Never, No Age, and High Places— which went down last Friday at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.
Twenty-one-year-old Brown University student Nicolas Jaar makes “weird, self-contained music” that incorporates elements of “lounge pop, African jazz, hip-hop, sound collage, house, and dubstep” on his debut LP, Space Is Only Noise. The record was named Best New Music today.
