Hans Tutschku: nighttime songs from afar
Immediately following the Twilight Epiphany sunset sequence, the Skyspace will host a sound and light installation composed by German composer Hans Tutschku. Composed specifically for Twilight Epiphany, Tutschku’s new work nighttime songs from afar will create an imaginary voyage by weaving voices from around the world into a complex, diverse, and harmonious whole through an immersive sound and light installation. The composition combines the breathtaking light of the Skyspace with sounds of folk songs, prayers, and lullabies from around the globe to form a ritualistic sensory event not to be missed. Tutschku performs at the premiere on April 7, with introductions by Kurt Stallmann. The work is ongoing through April 23, 2018, immediately following daily sunset light sequences.
Free and open to the public. Reservations can be made online at Skyspace.rice.edu.
