Description

For her commission from the Jerome Foundation, performer/composer Gelsey Bell offers OUR DEFENSIVE MEASUREMENTS, a new collection of songs by the artist. Bell sets the stage for these songs with a question: “Song can be a mechanism for tracing a home – creating space for oneself. Where do our defensive calculations place the pathways of the voice?”

Using the full space of the Roulette concert hall, each song in the cycle has been designed for the audience and performers to be in a particular physical arrangement or engaged in a particular task. The piece will be performed by Gelsey Bell (voice/metallophone) with Jen Baker (trombone/voice), Paul Pinto (voice/metallophone/jack-of-all-trades), Dave Ruder (clarinet/voice), and Aliza Simons (euphonium/voice).
