Music for Rocks and Water
By Composer Cheryl Leonard
February 18, 2007, 1pm

On Sunday, February 18th, at 1pm at the Exploratorium, three musicians play amplified water and a spectrum of rocks in a performance of compositions inspired by gestures and motions from the natural world. The works, by composer Cheryl Leonard, are based on phenomena such as the mysterious racing rocks of Death Valley, ocean waves and eddies, rockfall on mountains, wobbling boulders, patterns of wind on grass, the sculpting of landscapes by glaciers, water flow through falls and rapids, and shifting tectonic plates. This performance is presented in conjunction with Listen: Making Sense of Sound, a major new exhibit collection at the Exploratorium, and is included in the price of admission to the Exploratorium.
