Five Sketches is a collaboration with composer Kathryn Mishell at the intersection of chamber music and drawing. I play the percussion part of this new work in concert with Karl Kraber, flutist, and the composer at the piano. Following Kathryn's written music, I strike and stroke my drawing surface with silver thimbles on all my fingers to produce both sound and a silverpoint drawing for each movement of the piece. The audience has the opportunity to witness drawing as an intention and consequence of music.
*These concerts are followed by a buffet dinner and a chance to mingle with the musicians, the host of the private home where the concert takes place, and fellow music lovers. Please visit salonconcerts.org for more information and to purchase tickets.
My participation is supported by Career Opportunity Grants from both the Oregon Arts Commission and The Ford Family Foundation. I'm honored and grateful for their support.— Linda Hutchins, January 12, 2013 /
