Morton Feldman's Three Voices with dancers

Friday January 17
7:30 PM
Trident Gallery
189 Main St.
Gloucester, MA

Many years ago a composer friend of mine, Andrea Fontemaggi, gave me a copy of Morton Feldman's Three Voices for Joan La Barbara.  He said, "Make sure you have enough time to sit and listen to the whole thing.  Sit right in the middle of the speakers for the best sound." And I think he may have encouraged me not to move!  That may have been just how I felt when I listened to it.  I couldn't move.  I was transfixed by the movement of the sound.

When Matt Swift (Trident Gallery) asked me to curate performance in agreement with his Winter exhibition, about creating a space for stillness and reflection, I immediately thought of this piece...  with dance. I'm breaking my history of stillness with the piece and joining in the movement of the sound, to create a quiet and powerful score that creates space for listening and reflecting as well as viewing.

Kickstarter for Sphere

Dear friends,
Today I am launching a Kickstarter campaign for a project that will premiere on Gloucester at the White-Ellery House on August 5th, with the goal of having a tourable piece to travel around New England. I have a great creative team involved to collaborate and perform, and I want to make sure they all get paid. Please help, even small amounts mean a lot!
