This week we have been working on a new project at the Gardiner Museum, developing a performance of Pauline Oliveros’s celebrated 1970 orchestral work To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of Their Desperation.
Organizing as an experimental orchestra that consists of musicians and non-musicians alike, the group includes notable artists, musicians, choreographers, composers, and dancers such as Anne Bourne, Allison Cameron, Ame Henderson, Anni Spadafora, Brendan Jensen, Claire Harvie, Christopher Willes, Ellen Furey, Evan Webber, Germaine Liu, Ishan Davé, and Thom Gill. This project has been initiated by Christopher Willes, with consultation from Anne Bourne.
We will be giving a free performance at the Gardiner Museum tomorrow, Thursday August 17th at 7pm. Please join us!
