FREE event

NOTE: RESCHEDULED FROM Jan. 16 to Jan. 23

Requiem is sound installation by sound artist and musician Steve Norton. The work’s topic is human-driven extinction. It is an electronic music composition whose sound materials are exclusively the sounds of bird and frog species which have gone extinct during the era of recorded sound, enabling us to hear them once again, forever or until the power goes out. Steve will address the audience at the Fields Pond Center regarding the making of Requiem, his artistic research, the work’s context and a little about the technology involved.  Steve was a working musician in the Boston area for over thirty years, playing woodwinds and other instruments in the avant-garde jazz and free improvisation communities. He has recently completed an MFA in Intermedia at the University of Maine.  

Note: The  Requiem installation will be open to the public at Fields Pond from January 13 through February 13.
