Frozen Music will organize version 4 of its outdoor sound installation piece titled, Picnic. The piece will feature an electronic sound environment that behaves as natural as the calls of birds, insects and amphibians found in remote areas of the everglades. these sounds will surround the audience from four discrete cardinal points.

Visitors are invited to bring their own blankets and food baskets and to setup picnics right on the lawn, and to exchange with each other while experiencing this extended duration piece from 1PM until sundown.

Frozen Music is an ensemble that performs electronic sound installations that blend into, and interact with, the natural environment in outdoor spaces. It features sound artists David Dunn, Rene Barge and Gustavo Matamoros. More information about Frozen Music, visit: frozen music

listening club session curated by brook dorsch

about new takes on old musical ideas

brookdorsch portrait
Improvements come from experience, in order to produce something innovative to your senses. Improvements can manifest themselves in many forms, improvements of skill, improvements of form, improvements of technique, etc. When it comes to sound, sound art, noise, music – artists that are always trying to innovate look towards improvements of all aspects of the piece they are trying to present. Improvements can be very subjective whereas some might see playing a Violin with Cymbal as an improvement, others might not.

The works that I chose to play for this session of the listening club – highlight works that produced a “new experience” for me personally, sometimes they were directly associated with a new Improvement or Innovation of Structure, Format or Sound, and other times the experience was more subtle but the end result was that the work sounded new and exciting within the context of my musical, sound listening experience.

I hope you enjoy.
