Performances: Quilt Music

Quilt Music No. 1.JPG

Sunday February 18th          8pm          $10 suggested donation

Quilt Music is a collaboration between quilter Emma Banay and composer Dave Scanlon. The project explores the commonalities between quilting & musicmusic & sculpture, and quilting & experimental arts. Scores/Instruction are created and then interpreted in both mediums. By focusing on theme & variation, wave length, rhythm, and form the scores/instructions lend themselves equally to both mediums. Such interdisciplinary work also highlights the temporal quality of music and the physicality of quilting.

At Rhizome this process will be opened up to involve quilters from the DC area and the DC Modern Quilt Guild. In addition, Quilt Music will be sonically performed by DC musicians Layne Garrett, Sarah Hughes, Steve Korn, Ian McColm, Nate Scheible, and Luke Stewart.
