Joseph Bertolozzi’s Musique de la Tour/Tower Music @ Newburgh Free Library

June 5, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Composer Joseph Bertolozzi harvested the Eiffel Tower’s sounds using microphones placed on its surfaces, then composed a work entitled Musique de la Tour/Tower Music, using only the natural sounds of the Eiffel Tower. This multi-media lecture/demonstration outlines his artistic methods as well as the enormous organizational, political and practical challenges he faced. You will experience the Eiffel Tower in a way you’ve never done before. Q&A will follow and CDS will be available for purchase.
