The Warhol and Powdermill Nature Reserve, Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s environmental research station, invited interdisciplinary artist Jace Clayton to compose a sound installation for Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds installation. This audio intervention is inspired by both the work of museum researchers at Powdermill and Warhol’s futuristic floating sculptures, which hover between the natural and the artificial. Clayton’s piece reflects the bird-like sounds created by oscillators in David Tudor’s original score for Rainforest, Merce Cunningham’s 1968 dance performance set amidst Warhol’s Silver Clouds.
