Lisa Cameron has been involved with many COTFG and NMASS projects and has collaborated with Jandek, Eugene Chadbourne, Ernesto Diaz-Infante and many others. “Canopy of Sound” is the latest phase of her experimentation with acoustic cymbals, and invites real-time audience participation. On Wednesday, June 12th,11-16 players will be playing cymbals in 4 different locations at sunset at Austin’s Town Lake.
The piece will start in a tunnel, with players stationed spaced apart on each side of a trail. The audience is invited to walk around in the space defined by the sound. Next the players will station themselves along the trail towards the Opossum Voodoo Pew for a second performance. At sunset we will proceed further on up the trail to the Lamar Pedestrian Bridge. Finally we will meet at the Liz Carpenter fountain for a spectacular colorful finale.
