2009 Garden of Memory Music / Performance Walk-Through Event at Chapel of the Chimes

I’ll be performing next at the annual Garden of Memory performance walk-through event at Chapel of the Chimes, in Oakland, California, where I have performed every June 21st for the past several years, usually with the Cornelius Cardew Choir, a new music/sound art vocal ensemble. This is an amazing and totally unique performance event, which features a who’s who of the San Francisco Bay Area’s New Music scene and often includes composers, musicians and vocalists who cross musical genres. It is held in a historical landmark, a Julia Morgan-designed colombarium that has over 110 chambers or rooms, gardens, palm trees, ponds, trickling streams, skylights and other unusual features.

The best part—you can arrive anytime between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on June 21st, the Summer Solstice, and you can bring children, who are usually fascinated by the experience. You receive a map of the building at the door, and there are both stairways and elevators. The musicians are staked out in many different types of rooms and in some of the gardens on all of the floors, and as you make your way through the winding hallways, courtyards and passages, you hear a wonderful cross-blend of the music wafting from the different chambers. The range of performers is nothing short of amazing and includes anything from cutting edge electronics that interface with the natural elements of the space (trickling streams, the wind, etc.) to vocal ensembles and almost all acoustic instruments, to dancers, poets and experiments with text and sound, and much more.

Even the deceased seem to appreciate the event, to which some of the musicians dedicate their performances. The silent residents of Chapel of the Chimes are encased in urns that look like sculptured books on the “shelves” in each chamber. There are also two chapel spaces on the ground floor and several larger spaces on the upper floors where keyboardists, ensembles and those drawing larger audiences usually perform. You are drawn to explore each of the 3-4 floors and “discover” each performer or ensemble as you move through the extraordinary building. A palette of sunset colors streams through the skylights as the event progresses, adding an incredible atmosphere to what is truly a remarkable adventure. You can bring cameras and video equipment, but it is best to check first at the door and to remain unobtrusive so you won’t disturb the experiences of either the performing musicians or the “moving audience.”

On the map, you should be able to locate the ensemble I’ll be performing with this year, the Cornelius Cardew Choir. Come listen and join in—at least one piece we’ll be doing will involve optional audience participation. We’re still rehearsing, but at this point, I know we’ll be performing pieces by contemporary composers that include Pauline Oliveros, Joseph Zitt, and probably a few others (to be updated).

In 2005, an original composition of mine was performed by the Cardew Choir, entitled Wings of Silver Light, an anti-war (or pro-peace) piece, which was a memorial to those who have passed away in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as a general memorial to loved ones who have passed on. I love the Chapel of the Chimes and this event, so it is likely that I’ll compose another piece for a future Solstice performance.

Here’s the vital information—please stop by and say hello if you come to the event!
