Eco-Urgency at Wave Hill

Eco-Urgency: Music and Nature with the String Orchestra of Brooklyn
Sun, Sept 19, 2021 5:30–6:30PM
Wave Hill, Bronx, NY

This program is held in conjunction with Eco-Urgency: Now or Never, an exhibition organized by Wave Hill in partnership with Lehman College Art Gallery, which addresses the unfolding ecological crisis, including overlapping social, political and environmental concerns. In response to the urgency of the present moment, artists in this exhibition create objects, videos, performances and community organized projects to encourage public engagement, provoke conversation and actions, and deepen awareness of these issues.

Featured in this evening’s program is Zach Layton’s Stridulitrum (2013), a composition for strings, bowed electric guitar and insect chorus. Layton is a guitarist, composer, curator, teacher and media artist whose work explores human and non-human sound production techniques, biofeedback, improvisation, indeterminacy and histories of the visual representation of sound and vibration. In Stridulitrum, he incorporates field recordings of crickets and other chirping insects with his string arrangement, creating sonic connections between humanmade music and harmonies found in nature. Also on the program will be Scott Wollschleger’s Outside Only Sound and Darian Thomas’ Floret Ephemera, which also work in concert with ambient sounds of the natural environment
