Music at the Museum presents: (re)Sounding
If you missed the 2020 exhibition of musical instruments from the Museum’s collection, this is your chance to see – and hear! – them. Music at the Museum is back with an outdoor performance that brings together historic instruments and new sounds – (re)Sounding. The concert will take place in the Museum’s outdoor courtyard. Attendees are asked to please bring their own chairs, wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth, and maintain appropriate social distance from other parties.
Artists, musicians, and co-curators of the 2020 (re)Sounding exhibition, Angus McCullough, Jake Nussbaum, and Adam Tinkle, bring new life to old instruments. Each musical instrument in the Bennington Museum collection has its own unique story, but have remained silent for decades. McCullough, Nussbaum, and Tinkle worked with the Museum’s curatorial staff to meet the instruments where they are, using their current states to generate new sounds.
For this performance, some of the instruments will be brought out of storage and off display to be played in a set of music by McCullough, Nussbaum, and Tinkle, collectively known as Seven Count. Hear the music of Seven Count, as well as other new compositions for these historic instruments, at: https://sevencount.
This event will be held indoors due to predicted rain. If you are not at least 14 days past your final vaccination, we recommend viewing the concert on CAT-TV.
Music at the Museum is presented to you at no charge, thanks to the support of Alison Nowak and Robert Cane.
