I’m working on a giant piece for 100+ minneapolis/st.paul musicians playing brass, percussion, woodwinds and tiny whistles. The site specific performance will take place on the Stone Arch Bridge, stretching across the Mississippi playing overlapping melodies derived from the route of the river. The piece follows the route of the river south past St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans and into the Gulf of Mexico.
The project is sponsored by the Northrop Concerts and Lectures series at the University of Minnesota, and will be performed on June 4 as part of the Northern Spark Festival. If this sounds like fun to you and would like to be involved, please check out our open call for performers here. Also, check out my page on the Northern Spark Site here.
Additionally, documentation from my last Minneapolis project is below: a sound installation in an igloo, site-specific trumpet, and collaborating with Emily Lacy and Joshua Beckman. Thanks for having us, Walker Art Center!
