Scratch Orchestra Reenactment
August 19 - September 15, 2009
You are invited to participate in a historical reenactment of Cornelius Cardew's Scratch Orchestra (1969-74.) No musical experience is necessary, only an instrument: i.e. cello, flute, kazoo, saxophone, drums, voice, washboard, guitar, trombone, pots and pans, etc. Meetings are Tuesdays at 7:30 PM in the Berwick Research Institute studios, 14 Palmer Street, Roxbury MA. Weekly rehearsals run from August 11 through mid-September. Attend one meeting or several. Acoustic instruments are encouraged, as electrical outlets are limited. This project is sponsored by the Berwick Research Institute's AIR (Artist in Research) Residency Program.
