The Transient Series continues with pieces performed by you, the audience. The compositions range from works for hair combs to experimental vocal rounds (think “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” as minimalist drone music) to conceptual works that challenge what it means to perform, and what it means to listen. The concert is curated by K. C. M. Walker, with a special performance by Chris Peck.

Composers: Yoko Ono, K. C. M. Walker, Manfred Werder, Chris Peck, Larry Polansky, George Brecht

Manfred Werder
Manfred Werder Composer, performer, curator, lives in situ.

Manfred Werder focuses on possibilities of rendering the practices regarding composition and field. 

His recent scores have featured either found sentences from poetry and philosophy, or found words from whatever impacts.

His performances, both indoors and outdoors, aim at letting appear the world’s natural abundance. 

Earlier works include stück 1998, a 4000 page score whose nonrecurring and intermittent performative realization has been ongoing since December 1997.
