Asphalt Orchestra is delighted to be performing on National Sawdusts community day event! The event includes:
Experimental Australian violinist Jon Rose engages the public with a ten-foot-tall, interactive electronic musical instrument. Via sensors and radio transmission, the movements and speed of the ball determine the sonic results. In partnership with D’Addario, composer and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, a National Sawdust artist-in-residence, will create an installation in a new work with kids from the Williamsburg-based El Puente Center for Arts and Culture, a National Sawdust partner. Puppeteer/designer/director Julian Crouch and musician/composer Saskia Lane—Birdheart collaborators and National Sawdust curators—join forces with Asphalt Orchestra to lead an interactive puppet parade to the East River. National Sawdust group-in-residence Found Sound Nation, a collective of musicians and artists who leverage the unique power of creative sound-making to help build strong, just, healthy communities, will hold mobile studios throughout the parade for the public.
