PS21 Nature Walk, Workshop & Concert – Resonant Mechanisms: The Experimental Music Tradition in Upstate New York – [Switch~ Ensemble], Nov 18  

PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century is hosting a Nature Walk, Workshop, and a Concert on Friday, November 18th.  

Nature Walk 
Explore hidden corners and unmarked trails of PS21’s 100 acres of meadows, woodlands, and rolling hills with artist Alison McNulty, including a visit to McNulty’s installation Hudson Valley Ghost Column 7, the first public art project commissioned by PS21. Ghost Column 7, a cylindrical tower of vintage bricks and unprocessed wool, engages imaginatively with PS21’s landscape as it weathers the changing seasons. McNulty writes that her work “emerges from an interdisciplinary perspective informed by natural sciences, archaeology, diverse writers and thinkers, and place-based research.” Participation is FREE and open to all ages. Wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes and dress with the weather in mind.

Participatory Music Workshop
[Switch~ Ensemble], Victoria Cheah, and Jen Kutler
In this participatory workshop the [Switch~ Ensemble] musicians and guest composers Victoria Cheah and Jen Kutler explore composition, experimental practices, and analog technology in their music, including Kutler’s musical sewing machines. Participation is FREE and open to all ages. Musicians are welcome to bring an instrument, though they are not necessary for participation. Anyone, with any level of musical experience, can participate or observe. 

Resonant Mechanisms: The Experimental Music Tradition in Upstate New York – [Switch~ Ensemble]
