Tree Talk

  • Mills College Art Museum Oakland, CA (map)

Performance with Dirt and Copper: John Ivers, Marc Zollinger, and Dirt and Copper will perform works generated from María Elena González’ birch tree rubbings which will be on display for her exhibition Tree Talk. In collaboration with González, the composers translated the visual, gestural, and topographic data found in the tree rubbings into scores to be premiered at the event. Each re-composition approaches the material in a myriad of ways ranging from strict graphical interpretations to varying conceptions of growth-time as the ensembles traverse open and diverse notations.
