"Water Music" by Null Point

In the Emerald Grove

Null Point’s musicians present an extended-duration participatory performance with, in, and about the Niagara River. Taking place in the Emerald Grove and on the nearby riverfront platform, the performance samples and processes the river’s sounds through electronic and non-electronic means, utilizing experimental music and contemporary art strategies to facilitate close listening to the complex socio-ecological relations in which the river is entangled. In connection with the Lukas Foss centennial, this performance features canonical mid-twentieth century experimental music scores with water by Yoko Ono and Mieko Shiomi, and connects these scores to the Niagara region through against-the-grain interpretations focused on regional environmental justice issues. To further connect these scores to the present, the event also presents new works by emerging artists around the relationality of water(s).

 

This event is free to attend.
