Yacht, White Rainbow

Crowley Theater
With White Rainbow

Yacht is one of the many creative alter egos of Jona Bechtolt, a musician and multimedia artist who embraces an eclectic but playful blend of electronics, acoustic percussion, and noises of all sorts. When not occupied with Yacht, Bechtolt has created performance pieces under commission to New York City’s New Museum of Contemporary Art and the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art. Recently Claire L Evans — writer, media-artist and musician — has joined YACHT on a permanent basis, and with Bechtolt, has embarked on an international tour that will make its way Marfa to kick-off our 2009 music season.
