60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/7/09) [Dick/Burns]

On Simak Pond
Music: Robert Dick
Dance: Marsi Burns

Robert Dick is best known as the composer/performer who is the leading light in the world of new music for flutes. His compositions have been recognized with a Guggenheim Fellowship, two NEA Composer Fellowships, a Koussevitzky Foundation Commission, two Meet the Composer Commissions, and many others. In addition to his flute music, Dick writes chamber music and has a lifelong interest in low-tech musique concrete. Inspired by the science fiction writings of Clifford J. Simak, On Simak Pond is meant to conjure apparitions that float in the magical dusk at the shore of a real and imaginary pond where memory, sentiment, conjecture, fear and joy all overlap.
