Fathoms and Measures by A.I.R. Alex Branch
Friday, September 29th from 6-9pm
The closing of Fathoms and Measures by our current artist in residence Alex Branch.
Artist Alex Branch came to the desert to build a musical boat. What she created was an orchestra. Using found materials, Branch re-purposes broken musical instruments to create pieces that function in new ways. Rebuilding what is broken, she uses pieces from pianos, clocks, cellos and crutches to reinvent music making. And yes, there is a boat.
7pm performance by Bryce Fletcher Hample of REIGHNBEAU and Hedia. Hample will play the sculptural instruments.
