Palaver Strings presents: Teaching Time To Walk

May 18 @ 7:00 pm

$18

When we play music live, time becomes our medium. Our relationship to time is ever-changing
and rich in metaphor; in the words of Paul Celan, We shell time and teach it to walk: then time
returns to the shell. Sometimes we play with audience expectations and sense of stability, while
other times we must confine our own personal expression to a pulse that is larger than us. With
this program, we invite our listeners to think about stability and flux, how we go with the flow
and how we can disrupt it. This program features a collaborative new commission by
percussionist, electronic musician, and composer Nate Tucker.
