SILENCE/noise Tour

Creativity Fund, Winter 2008-09

Project Description

I will present concerts in three cities; Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. These concerts will be aimed at an audience who mayor may not be acquainted with new music. The goal is to inform the audience of the concepts behind new music and the beauty of listening to it. This will be accomplished by using pre-recorded sound clips of Tim Weiss, Darrett Adkins, Marcelle Pierson, and John Cage speaking on new music and how to approach it as a listener. Each pieee on the program is accompanied by an audio clip that directly relates to the approach needed for the work The program is also designed in such a way that the contrast of silence and noise fine tunes the audience's ears to a fuller appreciation of sound.
