Ariel Pink, Dan Deacon, Dave Longstreth and more join Doug Aitken’s Station To Station U.S. train tour

By , Jun 20 2013

Multimedia artist Doug Aitken has called in dozens of musicians, visual artists and writers for his Station To Station tour of “nomadic happenings” this September.

Throughout the month, a train will stop at 10 locations between New York and San Francisco, and each stop will feature a site-specific happening involving a variety of artists.

Musicians signed up include formerly lo-fi auteur Ariel Pink, Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors, alt.pop maximalist Dan Deacon and British post-punk revivalists Savages.

Also confirmed are Charlotte Gainsbourg, Eleanor Friedberger, Nite Jewel, No Age, Twin Shadow and Connan Mockasin.

Aitken says of the project: “This is a fast moving cultural journey, a constant search over the new horizons of our changing culture. Grounded in some basic questions — who are we? Where are we going? And, at this moment, how can we express ourselves? — our intention is to create a modern cultural manifesto.” [via Pitchfork]
