It’s about as close to “Laser Floyd” as Lincoln Center will ever get. The OpenEnded Group, a tech-savvy artists’ collaborative, pays homage to Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart series with Breath, a grand synthesis of art, technology, and music. The still to the left is from "Masses I," a visual juxtaposition of Bach’s Mass in B minor and Ockeghem’s fifteenth-century Missa Mi-Mi. The installation, eight vertical panels hanging on the façade of Avery Fisher Hall, with music performed by Ruth Cunningham and Elizabeth Baber, together with the singers of New York Polyphony, opens today and runs through August 22. For optimal viewing, go between 8:45 p.m. and midnight. —Rachel Wolff
