A special note about yasiin bey: Negus:

The listening experience is 28 minutes, with the recording being played once, from beginning to end. The wireless headsets have volume controls, but you will not be able to pause, backtrack, fast-forward, or stop the music. You’ll be asked to exit the gallery once the listening experience is complete. Dance Party music may be audible within the gallery space. bey invites you to fully immerse yourself in this introspective listening installation, which is why all mobile and recording devices will be placed in a locked pouch for the duration of your time in the gallery. Laptops, tablets, and other portable electronic devices are not allowed.
