Contemporary sound-based artists transform your MCA experience on select Fridays with custom soundtracks reflecting their perspective of works on view in the museum. DJ sets and bands occupy spaces in the museum as the building itself amplifies their sound constructions.
For this virtual Soundtrack, youth artist and DJ Michael Barclay, who spins under the name MBIII, creates a set of hip-hop, soul, and funk in response to current exhibitions.
