Premiere of ‘kingsbury branch’ by Otto Muller
Goddard College Gardens 4:00pm, free
Plainfield, Vermont

‘kingsbury branch’ is a set of pieces about rural space and the acoustic traces of colonial geography. Tracing the watershed from Pekin Brook to the Winooski river, this piece weaves together field recordings, local history, folk song archives, invasive species, and haunted rafters in a 35-minute composition for ensemble and electronics.

‘kingsbury branch’ will be premiered in the Lower Gardens at Goddard College and will be followed by a story sharing circle where members of the community are invited to speak of their own experiences of boundary lines, waterways, places, and ghosts.

Postponed

It is with regret that we postpone our May 9 and 10, 2020 ‘Women of Aeronautics’ program. This program is designed around the world premiere of a multi-media work by Vermont composer Danielle O’Hallisey. The piece is an homage both to individual pioneers and to women who have expanded humanity’s reach into space; an invitation for listeners to learn about, love and grieve these aviatrixes and scientists of the twentieth century.

TURNmusic premieres music by Vermont composer Danielle O’Hallisey. Danielle has undertaken the collection of historic clips with an eye to creating new work for our ensemble, merging interviews, speeches and intercepted audio in a multimedia composition and recording.

The piece will be an homage both to individual pioneers and to women who have expanded humanity’s reach into space–an invitation for listeners to learn about, love and grieve these aviatrixes and scientists of the Twentieth Century.

This program is inspired by and will also support Vermont Works for Women.
