Sunday, August 2: Reverberations at Battery Townsley
Battery Townsley, Fort Cronkhite, Marin Headlands >>
Park at Rodeo Beach Parking Area. There is a 30 minute hike to the performance site. Bring warm winter jackets, gloves and blankets as site is windy and chilly even on sunny days.
5:30 pm: Check-in and registration
6:00pm: Performances begin
In partnership with the National Park Service, three immersive performances are set at the historic Battery Townsley, a WWII battery fortification overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Artists Zoey Vero, Vanessa Li, Dan Gottwald, and Gabriel Goldberg, will use the extreme resonances of the tunnels and uniquely shaped rooms of the structure to give us an extraordinary sound experience worthy of its natural setting.
Gabriel Goldberg, whose other-worldly vocals will be accompanied by the Halo Handpan (a steel melodic percussion instrument), and a selection of exotic, ethereal sounding acoustic instrumentation, explores sacred resonant spaces. Dan Gottwald and the Analogous Ensemble will explore the sonic, visual and metaphoric architecture of eyes with the piece, “The Abundant’s Eyes.” Vanessa Li and Zoey Vero will use the Battery’s architectural plans and historical context as inspiration for their collaborative sonic and visual compositions.
