This program will include the live world premiere of Skowhegan Birch #1, 2012 (from the Tree Talk series), by artist Maria Elena Gonzalez, executed on a player piano by renowned interpreter Randolph Herr. Gonzalez created the Pianola music score from the bark of a fallen birch tree she found in the summer artist colony in Skowhegan, Maine. Striations in the bark were scanned and digitally cut onto scrolls for piano rolls by the company, Laser Cutting Shapes, in Columbus, Ohio. The result is literally a sound created directly from a tree. A video documenting the work and featuring Randolph Herr's interpretation will be presented in the exhibition Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design.

Venue Description: Open Tues.-Sun., 11am-6pm (Thurs. & Fri. until 9pm). $15; $12, students/seniors. Pay what you wish Thurs., 6-9pm.
