The closing date for artist and composer Raven Chacon’s solo exhibition at Jonson Gallery rapidly approaches. In conjunction with the “Lightning Speak” retrospective, a performance of Chacon’s composition “Drum Grid” is scheduled for April 29 at UNM. Devoted readers may recall our interview with Chacon. If not, refresh your memory here.
On Friday, April 29, from 1 to 2 p.m., more than 20 members of massive local ensemble Death Convention Singers will congregate at the center of UNM’s Main Campus. For one hour, the drummers will play a game of percussive “telephone,” wherein noise traveling from players closest one another provides a compositional framework.
