Comfort Music Presents:
Beyond This Point + Matthew Duvall
nature | human: Child of Tree
An investigation of the relationship of humans to the natural world, nature | human: Child of Tree, featuring GRAMMY-winning percussionist Matthew Duvall brings together a set of repertoire that connects the performers to the base materials of percussion–woods, skins, metals, water, stones, seeds–through staged interactions. Paul Lansky’s Threads serves as the framework of a journey through a program including works by Matthew Burtner, Juri Seo, John Cage (Child of Tree), Erik Griswold, and Richard Reed Parry. Excerpted material from lectures by Alan Watts–perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern philosophy for the contemporary West–serves as a guiding voice in a program designed to create space for audiences to consider and explore their own connection with the external environment.
This program is made possible by Elevated Chicago, a partnership to create community-based transformations in areas around the city’s train system housed at the Chicago Community Trust.
