Tool Fire Rain sound file coming soon!
I am thrilled to have received a composition commission from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, the Bonnarroo Works Fund and the Community Foundation of Tennessee.
The call submission dictated creating a new work based on one of our many great public art installations in Nashville, TN. I chose Chris Fennell’s Tool Fire, a sculpture made of shovels, picks and other tools used to clean up after our devastating 2010 flood.
I played the sculpture with mallets and a bow, added bowed cross-tuned upright bass and recorded a rainstorm that came through during my work sessions to create Tool Fire Rain.
Link coming soon!
