A Murmur in the Trees

Zeitgeist presents a musical performance and poetry reading featuring the music of Eve Beglarian and poetry by Emilio DeGrazia.

Composer Eve Beglarian was inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem and a piece of birch bark to create A Murmur in the Trees, a 30-minute work that features 25 double bass players spread throughout a grove of trees. The birch bark is used as a musical score that determines the sounds the basses create and where the players are located. The audience is welcomed to walk throughout the forest and listen to the music from different places, hearing some basses nearby and some quite far away.

Join us to walk among the trees and surround yourself with the sounds of double bass players from across the community.
