FLORASONIC: Tim Daisy: 'The Glass House' >
March 13, 2016 - July 10, 2016
Daily, 9-5pm    Fern Room, Lincoln Park Conservatory, 2391 Stockton Drive
What you'll hear in the Fern Room is The Glass House by Chicago composer and percussionist Tim Daisy. The composition reflects various aspects of the structure of the building itself. It is recorded in four sections that play simultaneously, each supporting the other, much like the metal ribs of the four corners of the Fern Room support the overall structure. These musical sections are of different lengths, so they continuously mix and remix in surprising and unpredictable ways. The instruments, including vibraphone, cymbals, radio and turntables, recall both the materials of the building and its location in an increasingly technologized environment. The Glass House explores the sounds hidden within the Conservatory’s architecture and acknowledges its function as an urban home for botanical diversity.
