PAUL DRESHER ENSEMBLE’S SOUND MAZE WITH RINDE ECKERT
Family Day is OZ Arts’ annual public festival of indoor and outdoor arts activities for young people and families, designed to spark creativity, activity, and interaction. Dispersed among the grounds of OZ Arts, dozens of local artists and community organizations set up activity stations enabling kids to tap into their imagination while having fun with friends and family members.
The centerpiece of this year’s Family Day is Paul Dresher Ensemble’s Sound Maze. Sound Maze is an interactive experience of sound and mechanics, consisting of fifteen newly invented musical instruments and sound sculptures that audience members are invited to interact with and improvise upon. 2007 Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama and Obie Award-winner Rinde Eckert will perform on the myriad of instruments at 1pm.
There will be a performance by Rinde Eckert on some of the instruments on August 15, and the installation will be up on from August 16 to 18 for audience interaction.
