New in Sound: Dither (in conjunction with the exhibition, Geometries: Selections from the Collection)
7pm, Broad MSU Education Wing
Dither, a New York based electric guitar quartet, is dedicated to an eclectic mix of experimental repertoire which spans composed music, improvisation, and electronic manipulation. With sounds ranging from clean pop textures to heavily processed noise, from tight rhythmic unity to cacophonous sound mass, all of Dither’s music embraces the beautiful, engulfing, and often gloriously loud sound of electric guitars. Dither has worked with a wide range of artists, including Eve Beglarian, Elliott Sharp, David Lang, John Zorn, Fred Frith, Lois V. Vierk, Larry Polansky and Bryce Dessner. Recent performances include the Performa Biennial, The MATA Festival, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Bang on a Can Marathon.
*A limited number of tickets will be available at the door on the night of the event for an additional $3.00

More than 70 percent of the 46,000-square-foot facility is dedicated to exhibition space. The museum is named for Eli and Edythe Broad, longtime supporters of Michigan State University, who provided the lead gift for the museum.
