About the Event

Dinosaur Annex Music Ensemble, in collaboration with curator Arlinda Shtuni, presents a unique salon experience inspired by her new exhibit, Reservoir: What the Water Knows on view at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum. Showcasing new and rendered artworks by six noted artists--A+J Art+Design/ Ann Hirsch and Jeremy Angier, Caitlin & Misha, Heather Kapplow, Nathaniel Price, Nancy Selvage and Ros Zimmermann--the exhibit probes our complicated relationship with water. It looks deeply into how climate warming is impacting each of us and invites us to consider: how are our watery bodies registering and responding to these shifts?

The Thirst and Quenching Salon offers a program of musical compositions and poetry that explore these aqueous quotidian needs and deeper longings. Drawn from diverse experimental traditions, the musical pieces vividly evoke the element of water in an array of states and sonic manifestations. Containing notated and open-ended elements, the works reflect the unpredictability of water’s meandering ways. While noted poets Dara Barrois/Dixon and Ros Zimmermann's verse and experiments with sound render palpable the perpetual process of change in and around us, the yearning for connection, and the debt we owe to the world’s continuing beauty.
