Notes: Edgewood College percussion instructor Todd Hammes performs a faculty recital on Saturday, November 17 at 2:30 pm. Mr. Hammes’ performance will include elements of sculpture, acting, poetry, and music, with instruments arranged in the manner of a sculpture exhibit. The performer and the audience will move within spaces in The Stream, the College’s new visual and theatre arts center.
All of the works being performed were derived from, or influenced by, poetry. There are several settings of traditional Japanese Haiku, an American poem about creativity by Dan Seen, and a lament by Michael Hester entitled “The Day is Done.” Mr. Hammes will also present John Cage’s “Child of Tree,” a work for plant materials, as well as two pieces that were written for his newly constructed “tube-o-phone,” a just-tempered instrument invented by Lou Harrison. Admission is $7.00 for the general public, and free with Edgewood College I.D.
This event is presented as part of the Year of the Arts at Edgewood College, a celebration of music, theatre and art for 2012-2013. Supporters of our Year of the Arts programming include the Kohler Foundation, BMO Harris Bank, the Madison Arts Commission, with additional funds from the Wisconsin Arts Board, DANE Arts with additional funds from the Pleasant T.
