St. Maurice Church in the Lower Ninth Ward has recently undergone a strange transformation. The formerly abandoned space is now home to Taylor Shepherd’s “Altarpiece” in anticipation of an upcoming Space Rites segment featuring a performance with Nels Cline of Wilco and local guitarist Rob Cambre. The altar installation is made of about 30 or so analog televisions donated by Goodwill and rewired to interpret sound.
