Water Music
Lights and music “dance” on water as the Digital Music Ensemble features a concert of “Gypsy Pond Music 5” on North Campus. Called an “interactive floating labyrinth” the School of Music project, performed last week, began with a study of Greek, Muslim, Hopi Indian and Catholic myths, says associate professor Stephen Rush. Students then were challenged to translate the diverse works into sculpture and music representative of contemporary life, he says. The work was created by students from music, art, engineering and dance, under the direction Rush, who says Gypsy Pond Music 5 “is loosely based on [composer] John Cage’s notion that ‘music is all around us, if only we had ears to hear.’” (Photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services)
