HOUSE BLEND MUSIC

August 19 at PS21 Pavilion

Skylighght, written and performed by Gelsey Bell (voice) and Erin Rogers (saxophone). The piece uses sound to gradually alter our experience of a space in ways akin to how artists James Turell or Robert Irwin use light. The two performers move through the space wordlessly directing the sound in pathways that dance around the room. The piece also involves a section called Building Canyons, where Bell sings into the bell of Rogers’s tenor saxophone, exploring its inner chamber and sounding a rainbow of diverse multiphonics.  

Skylighght was released on Chaiken Records on May 10, with a launch party in the catacombs at Green-Wood cemetery in Brooklyn.

 

House Blend is PS21’s annual chamber music series exploring a full range of adventurous music and creative modes of expression, fostering new collaborations specific to our place, venue, and audiences.

About PS21

A vibrant center for contemporary performance in the Hudson Valley, PS21 “presents work that challenges and invites” (The New York Times): adventurous productions by leading and emerging American and international artists in music, dance, and theater, and visionaries creating entirely new genres. On our open-air Pavilion Theater stage, across our expansive, unspoiled grounds, and in the diverse surrounding communities, PS21 cultivates and presents productions that transcend aesthetic boundaries and revitalize existing artistic languages and grammars. Throughout the year, we host developmental residencies for dancers, musicians, actors, and creators of original, even unclassifiable new work. Rooted in community collaboration, PS21’s programming engages creatively with critical global and social issues. It is a mecca for innovative and original artistic voices, a destination for performance that can be experienced nowhere else in the region. PS21’s Pavilion Theater is a green-energy marvel surrounded by 100 acres of unspoiled meadows, trails, and woodlands that are a haven to wildlife and visitors across the region.  Integrated into our unspoiled campus, the theater embodies our commitments to the public: open, inviting, and optimized for their enjoyment and encouraging citizen expression and participation.
