Jason Moran.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art commissioned an original composition by jazz pianist Jason Moran, developed in conjunction with the museum's 2008 exhibition Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt. The new composition was performed by the musical group Jason Moran & the Bandwagon as part of the museum's "Art After 5" music programming. Moran also presented a public lecture and performance about his compositional process and its intersection with the visual arts.
