Homage (for Pasolini), 2022

(for gourd instruments and environmental sounds)

Live concert for Gourds and ennvironmental sounds. The concert involved Fowler visiting a number of sites in Rome and Ostia where the filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini lived, worked, ate, cruised and was murdered.

In each of these sites Fowler brought one or several self-invented Gourd Instruments which played a single droning note or a droning chord. The instruments also collected the ambient sound of the environments in which they were placed. The resulting recordings were then composed and played back live as an immersive multi-channel concert.

premier: March 26, 2022, 5 pm, Zweigstelle Capitain,
