What does Dan Brunkhorst’s music sound like? Well …
“…an electronic language of microtonally tectonic shifting long tones. skittering plates of bell fields – bird scatter. the flow and motion of random intersections – cascading, spelunking indeterminacy. the insistently a-rhythmic implications of time slipping through the ears’ grasp – mist, fog, sea-foam, transience – vapor. as if reaching, metaphorically, to play the unplayable places – not un-akin to this verbiage as an attempt to talk about sound, as heard in a particular moment.” ~ Scott Ray in a review of Dan Brunkhorst’s music
What Is Sound Gallery?
What would it be like: hearing music through someone else’s ears? What does it mean to really listen. Can we hear three-dimensionally? Is music the most personal of all the art forms? Do we hear with only our ears? The Sound Gallery will be dedicated to the exploration of both music and listening. We invite you to join us on a grand adventure which is half “music performance” and half you the audience and your ability to listen.
“New music: new listening. Not an attempt to understand something that is being said,for, if something were being said, the sounds would be given the shapes of words. Just an attention to the activity of sounds.” John Cage
In a world full of sound we are proposing a series of small concerts that are unique journeys into an interior landscape of musical composition. Whether instantaneous or written down, each concert will be an original sonic viewpoint.
