BRIDGE MUSIC LECTURE @ MT. ST MARY COLLEGE, NEWBURGH, NY

On Friday, Aug 14 from 1pm-2:30pm, I’ll give a lecture-demonstration on Bridge Music as part of the Speaker Series at the Desmond Campus of Mt. St. Mary College in Newburgh, NY.DESMOND CAMPUS, MSM

As part of the 400th anniversary celebrations in 2009 of Henry Hudson’s voyage up the Hudson River, Bridge Music was created by recording the sounds of the Mid-Hudson Bridge’s surfaces (guard rails, girders, etc.) with various mallets and using those sounds to compose new works, making the Mid-Hudson Bridge the largest percussion instrument in the world. I’ll describe this journey and you’ll hear music containing no other tones than those of the bridge itself.
