For years, Ben Cosgrove has devoted his career to composing and performing music that reflects and considers landscape and place in environments all over the world. Intrigued by the variety of human responses to physical geography, he has used music both as an opportunity to explore landscapes and as a means of encouraging audiences to critically consider the shape, contour, boundaries, and meaning of the environments they inhabit.
Music for Ground and Atmosphere is a 45-minute live performance on keyboard and guitar interwoven with live improvisation and pre-composed material to respond musically to Olmsted and Nakayas’ spatial & artistic decisions. Performances will take place at 4:00pm and 5:00pm.
Presentation of this program is made possible with generous support from Barbara and Amos Hostetter, Eugene M. Lang Foundation and an anonymous donor.
