I had the pleasure of being invited to an intimate evening with Beck at Sonos Studio last week in celebration of his latest project, Song Reader, which is his an album in sheet music form. Though the forever cute Mr. Hansen did not perform (much to the crowd’s sadness) it was a delight to be in his presence while he spoke about his imaginative work and the music he’s created over the past 20+ years.
Song Reader’s songs were released exclusively as sheet music by McSweeney’s and are encased in a beautifully designed folder. As Beck discussed in his Q+A, he’s fallen in love with the many renditions his work has inspired, many of which he’s watched via Youtube. Sonos has created a space that is “specifically tailored to allow visitors to both engage with these audience interpretations and to create them.” Stop by the Sonos until March 24 to experience this beautifully curated show and even record your own jam from Song Reader!
