Chris Kallmyer leads a group of musicians in our first day of spatial music at the Hammer. Here’s the prompt:
Are we supposed to listen to our neighbors?
Incidental, ambulatory, and dispersed sound highlights the familiar architecture of the Hammer Courtyard. Independent duos perform across the courtyard spaces in an effort to communicate and listen to one another. Patrons can move through the 2 hour piece, or choose to sit and listen to a folk duo, saxophones, strings, tiny ceramic cups, and a lone percussionist.
