Caballito Negro premieres The Timbuktu Manuscripts by Erik Griswold in collaboration with the Oregon Fringe Festival
Oregon Fringe Festival presents Box |Grown Men Sing, composed and performed by flutist Tessa Brinckman, a 35 minute electro-acoustic tone poem which explores the meta-politics of solitary confinement, with live bass flute, waterphone, recordings of three survivors, found sound + video.
Caballito Negro collaborates with flutist Debra Harris, percussionists Chris Whyte and Jared Brown, continuing a series of presentations of the epic John Luther Adams’ “songbirdsongs”. A meditation on wildness, “songbirdsongs” is a collection of indeterminate miniature pieces for piccolos, ocarinas, and percussion, based on free translations of bird songs.
Tessa Brinckman is a visiting artist at Renée Coulombe’s new artistic residency, The Willows Nest, in Berlin. Coulombe – a composer, musician, multi-disciplinary adventurer – is both host and collaborator, in performance and discussion sessions. More details to come…!
