Colin Tucker and Ethan Hayden, co-curators of the Buffalo-based music collective Null Point, will lead DePauw students in performance of David Dun’s site-responsive work PLACE (1975), beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 with a rain date of Sunday, Sept. 23. This 10-section, modular performance-installation invites participants and observers alike to experience and interact with the sounds of an outdoor environment — in this case, DePauw University’s new Ullem Campus Farm — using different combinations of instruments, voices and audio gear.
Null Point poses the importance of PLACE through a series of open-ended questions. The 12-acre farm site, with its combination of cultivated land, buildings, meadow, path, and wooded surroundings, offers a rich ecological network for this exploration.
Fresh produce from the farm also will be available to sample during the performance, which will take place over several hours from late morning into afternoon, with breaks. Audience members are invited to experience the piece in their own way: stroll by, drop in and out, spend all day immersing yourself in the site and its sounds, perhaps with a picnic or book.
If you go, the Ullem Campus Farm is located between DePauw's athletic facilities and the Nature Park, behind the Indoor Tennis and Track facility. If traveling by car or bicycle, take Jackson to Walnut Street, turn left into the farm immediately after the railway crossing and follow the signs.
All are welcome to attend this free family-friendly event, which is funded by the DePauw School of Music and the Environmental Fellows Program.
