Mister Saturday Night

Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin: Live From Mister Sunday, July 20, 2014

Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin live at Mister Sunday in Industry City on Sunday, July 20. Completely independent of the mixing desk, this set was captured by a microphone perched in a tree just off the dancefloor.

Looking Back On 2013: Justin Carter

As has become tradition, Eamon and I attempt to wrap a bow around the musical year that was with our Best Of lists. As usual, I had a hard time limiting my list to things that came out in 2013, or even limiting it to just music; that Turrell piece made me feel like I’d just heard a symphony, and Herbie Hancock’s use of the vocoder on Sunlight is still yet to be matched. (No matter how hard Daft Punk tried this year.)

Dirg Gerner’s Dirg Gerner EP on Eglo
I can’t say enough about this record. Beautiful melody after beautiful melody, warm production, amazing songs. I played it and played it, but it never got old.

James Turrell’s Aten Reign at the Guggenheim
Last year I waxed on about Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s Einstein on the Beach. At the time Wilson said, “You don’t have to understand anything. It’s a work where you can go and get lost. That’s the idea.”

Aten Reign, James Turrell’s all-encompassing light installation inside the Guggenheim rotunda, was the visual art equivalent. There was no focal point, which is kind of like having an opera with no plot. It was beautiful and impossible to capture in photo, video or anything else – nothing but experience. A total inspiration in terms of what I want for our parties.

A little note: This show is over, but Turrell has a career retrospective at the LACMA until early April, and here’s a map of all of his installations around the world.

Looking Back on 2012: Justin Carter


It’s the end of 2012. It was a great year. Here are some things that made an impact on me. Not all necessarily of them are necessarily from this year, but this was the year that they entered my sphere.

Einstein on the Beach

I’ve had a subscription to BAM’s Next Wave Festival for ten years. Einstein on the Beach, Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s 1976 opera, was the opener to this year’s festival, and it was by far the best thing I’ve ever seen at BAM and among the best experiences of music and performance that I’ve ever had. . . .

New York, How We Picture It

This Saturday, we’re back in force with our very good friends Spank and the ARTCorps for the second edition of ‘New York, Just Like I Pictured It’. If you missed the first one then you can learn a little more about what makes this collaboration so special and unique here and again here.
