What Do You Hear?
July 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
For the cellist Rebecca Merblum, music has never been a standalone art. For her, sound and listening have always had topography. Each is connected to experiences and relationships. And then the pandemic emerged, and Merblum’s relationship to performance and music drastically shifted. So began the “Conversations for Duet with Cello.”
Over the past year, Rebecca led evolving virtual conversations with the artist and landscape architect Rebecca Krinke, the museum professional Lesley Kaddish, and her cello. The question they asked was: what happens if the separation between the performer and the audience is broken? If, instead of playing for the audience, Rebecca would have a direct 1×1 conversation with each one of the public? What will we hear then?
This event is the culmination of this year-long conversation. Moderated by the poet Mwatabu Okantah, part performance, part interactive experiment, part discussion panel, it will ask the attendees to engage in a conversation with the presenters and explore the question: what do we hear?
