February 16 - March 16, 2019
“Inuksuit, a concert-length work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams, will bring musicians and members of the community together with the leafy beauty of Rice University’s live oak grove on Feb. 16 at 4 p.m. in the grove just inside Entrance 1 on the Rice campus. The work encourages audience members to wander around the grove and create their own listening experience. Forty-five percussionists from Rice’s Shepherd School of Music and across the U.S. will spread out in the large live oak grove while playing drums, cymbals, gongs, glockenspiels and sirens. This will be the premiere performance with a landscape installation specifically designed for the work by Falon Mihalic. Using boulders, wood and cables, Mihalic’s design will create a listening map focused around a suspended chandelier in the center of the grove.”
Mihalic’s land art installation will be on view through March 16.
Performance: February 16, 2019 | 4–6 pm
