Prismatic Park Shelley Hirsch

New York. August 22. Book-Bark-Tree-Skin-Line is a celebration of language as music, centered on an investigation of the words of the title—book, bark, tree, skin, line—and their etymological, poetic, and sonic properties.

Shelley Hirsch has composed and recorded a 35 minute piece featuring her own voice and a choir assembled from attendees of her workshop “Explore Your 1000 Voices”. A diverse group of musicians and improvisers speaking several languages, playing many styles of music, and ranging from ages 15 to 77, Hirsch has worked with each member individually to create sung and spoken parts for their particular talents.
