A science-fiction new wave musical in which My Barbarian portrays wealthy, time-traveling futurians who return to nature after the collapse, Silver Minds conveys themes of conservation and environmental degradation through Noh-like vignettes featuring masked characters and abstract pop songs.

Silver Minds was originally commissioned by the Aspen Art Museum in March 2006 as an outdoor, site-responsive performance. Reshaped and reconfigured for the REDCAT, the piece is a collage of live music performance and video from the band’s cross country travels. Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, CO, Double Future, REDCAT, LA, CA 2006.
