Yuganaut is an avant-garde musical collective of improvising virtuosos. Yuganaut’s live shows involve playing to projected moving visual media. They call these “graphic scores” that are viewed simultaneously by the band, which consists of players on keyboards, euphonium, toys, bass, tuba, didgeridoo, drums, cornet, mandolin and vibes — and the audience.
At the Indianapolis Art Center on June 3 at 7 p.m., they will be performing to the 1925 film The Lost World, directed by Harry O. Hoyt, a silent adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s book of the same name. Yuganaut plays across many styles, including classical Western, jazz, rock, South Indian and electronica.
This is the concluding show in a season produced by the adventurous Mythopeic. The band will be giving out toy dinosaurs to the little guests in the audience. Tickets are $10 for Art Center members; $12 for non-members. The Indianapolis Art Center is located at 820 E. 67th St. Go to www.indplsartcenter.org for information or call 317-255-2464, ext. 223.
