Null Point Nature is Not Natural
Null Point presents a newly-developed, location-specific performance, interweaving neglected works by canonical experimental musicians Yoko Ono and Ben Patterson with new works of their own. The performance excavates and comments on the cultural origins of the public park through re-interpretations of musical figurations of Nature (particularly the “pastoral”), drawn principally from concert music and “nature sound” recordings. These musical reinterpretations are interwoven with spoken language, contextualizing the public park within spatial politics of the US/occupied Turtle Island. Featuring acoustic instruments and electronics dispersed throughout the lower park, the performance provides opportunities for audience members to experience location and movement as integral features of music.
This is a free performance!
