In the third and final installment of this year’s series electronic artist Jimmy Joe Roche will highlight the connections between mysticism, religion, and music, focusing on humans as imperfect resonate chambers, in the museum’s Baroque galleries. The violin and sitar of Raw Silk will team up with Jonna McKone to investigate the fraught nature of museum displays by attempting to bridge space and time with a combination of analog and digital sounds in the Walters’ Ancient Greek galleries.
