      Watersheds

      Sunday, June 21 @ 5pmIcebox Project Space, Crane Arts, Philadelphia pre-concert talk with Donald and Nicholas @ 4pm Watersheds (2018) by Nicholas Cline on texts of Rachel Carson, Mary Austin, John Muir, C.D. Wilber, and Henry ThoreauRothko Chapel (1971) by Morton Feldman with films by Brett Snodgrass Matthew Levy, tenor saxophone Wendy Richman, viola Ross Karre, percussion The friction between motion and stillness ties together these two ex- tended works that speak to each other over a chasm of nearly 50 years. Drawing on texts from American environmentalists, Nick Cline’s Watersheds has its roots in the composer’s family history; his grand- father was a water witch. In this probing work, fueled by the words of some of our most eloquent and outspoken environmental thinkers, Nick explores our relationship with shared spaces created not by politi- cal borders, but by the flow of water. And then there is Morton Feldman and Rothko Chapel, icons of the 1970s: abstract expressionism of the visual realm and experimentalism that presages minimalism of the aural realm synthesized in a contemplation of time and space. Transparent. Simple. In Feldman's words, "An immobile procession not unlike the friezes on Greek temples." With films by Brett Snodgrass projected on the giant canvas of the walls of the Icebox, Philadelphia’s industrial acoustic marvel. General - $35.00 Senior - $25.00 Student - $20.00
