Sonic Mountain with Doug Aitken & Hisham Akira Bharoocha
Twenty percussionists play Sonic Mountain.
Performers play a musical homage to the elements of nature in which this sculpture is built upon.
Humans can live in harmony with the power of nature, but humans can also be nature’s worst enemy. We can live within it in peace or try to control it, which sometimes results in large scale catastrophes. I would like to convey this musically in a few movements composed by myself and which are based on the notes and number of chimes existing in this sculpture. I will also be referencing the immediate environment surrounding this sculpture.
