Wait For That Light to Shine
It's no secret music is an audible experience. The instruments strumming, banging and wailing along with each other, creating a wall of sound that is trance-inducing and magical. But if you head to Laser Mania at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (1801 Mountain NW), you can experience music in a visual context, with laser lights choreographed to accompany the music of such noted groups as Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Pink Floyd. I'm opting for that last one. Can you imagine “Comfortably Numb” by laser light? I'm sure that's the way it's meant it to be heard. The colorful celebration starts on Friday, July 11, and Saturday, July 12, at 7pm both nights. To hear some Zeppelin and Beatles tunes with the presence of harmonic hues, attend on Friday. But Saturday is all about Pink Floyd's otherworldly notes as “colors poetically express each timeless track.” Tickets for these shows are $6 for adults and $5 for museum members and seniors. Oh, and there are also some family Laser Mania shows from July 12-17. Check nmnaturalhistory.org for details. (Mark Lopez)
