Concerto Laguna

Filed under: composition,instrument building,performance,premiere — travis @ 11:24 am

Premiere of my piece “Concerto Laguna” featuring a cello soloist on row boat in the middle of Laguna Gloria. Audience is free to roam around the lagoon as an ensemble of 8 percussionists playing custom made steel bells accompany the soloist. The piece is audible acoustically as well as via lower power FM broadcast. Audience is provided with radios to hear the simulcast and a map of the environment.
