In the 1980s, Kim Gordon founded the experimental post-punk band Sonic Youth out of an early interest in art, aesthetics, and performance. Gordon cites Warhol as one of her artistic influences, particularly the lo-fi aesthetic of Warhol’s studio, as well as his involvement with the Velvet Underground, and his multi-disciplinary practice in fashion, painting, music, publishing, and performance.

In 2018, The Andy Warhol Museum challenged Gordon to reimagine Warhol’s 1963 silent film Kiss by creating an original score to accompany the film. Gordon will be accompanied by Body/Head bandmate Bill Nace and fellow experimentalists Steve Gunn and John Truscinski in performing the new score live. Sound for Andy Warhol’s Kiss celebrates two wonderfully intertwined legacies, while affirming the one constant throughout Gordon’s comprehensive career: an ambitious quest to fuse her sonic and visual foundations through fearless creative experimentation.

Mission Creek Festival is honored to host Sound for Andy Warhol’s Kiss in its limited tour and midwest premier.
