Also, Tierra Whack will stage an “immersive show” at the iconic Rainbow Room, and composer and sound artist Holly Herndon will premiere a new live show called “Proto” from her new album of the same name, incorporating eight vocalists, Spawn (a nascent machine intelligence), machine learning specialists, choreographers, and visual artists.
