An Orange, Grown in Marfa: New Music from Roberto Carlos Lange

9 Sep 2021

Far In, Roberto Carlos Lange’s sixth album under the moniker Helado Negro, is scheduled for release on October 22, 202. Produced by 4AD, Lange’s album explores introspective themes of family, isolation, and career—a significant divergence from the artist’s past focuses on Latinx identity. In an interview with Pitchfork, Lange noted that the environmental and nature-centered sounds of Far In were inspired by his six-month stay in Marfa in 2020, when he and visual artist Kristi Sword undertook an extended residency as a part of Ballroom Sessions—The Farther Place. Check out the music video for the new single, “La Naranja,” out now!

Kite Symphony, an exhibition featuring the residency’s multimedia collaboration between Lange and Sword, opens January 21, 2022 at Ballroom.
