Music at the Museum presents: (re)Sounding

Music at the Museum is back with an outdoor performance celebrating the current exhibition, (re)Sounding, on view through December 31, 2020. 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. For those who prefer not to attend in person, the performance will be live-streamed on the Museum Facebook page.

Artists, musicians, and co-curators of the 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 work with the Museum’s curatorial staff to meet the instruments where they are, using their current state to generate new sounds. The exhibit explores the histories and traditional sounds of the instruments and provides opportunities to hear them brought back to life in new compositions.

For this performance, some of the instruments will be taken off of 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.bandcamp.com/album/re-sounding

Music at the Museum is presented to you at no charge, thanks to the support of Alison Nowak and Robert Cane.
