The 500 Capp Street Foundation is proud to present "Bellingham for David Ireland," a musical map composition created by Phillip Greenlief for The David Ireland House.
Known for his explorations in sound and composition, Oakland-based musician Phillip Greenlief has been working with actual maps to create musical scores. With his most recent score, Bellingham for David Ireland, Greenlief begins by collaging maps of David Ireland's hometown Bellingham, Washington. Greenlief then adds key words to the map score, which reflect upon different attributes of Ireland's life history, his home, and his artworks.
An hour-long performance, Greenlief's "Bellingham for David Ireland" establishes compositional cues for an ensemble of eight musicians who will be performing in rooms and hallways, building an immersive listening experience for visitors as they explore 500 Capp Street.
List of performers: Gabby Fluke-Mogul (violin), Phillip Greenlief (saxophone), Zachary James Watkins (electronics), Aurora Josephson (voice), Carl Ludwig Hubsch (tuba), Lisa Mezzacappa (bass), Karen Stackpole (gongs), Wobbly (electronics).
