Harmony, Rhythm, and Time: A Composer’s Approach to Garden Design
Wednesday, July 22nd, 1 – 2:30 p.m. EST (Noon – 1:30 p.m. CDT)
Despite its visual focus, landscape design has much in comin with music composition Composers lead their listeners on an aural journey. Designers conduct movement along a garden path. Both unfold sequentially over time. In part one, designer and composer Larry Weaner will explore how the techniques of music composition can enhance garden design. Part two will cover improvisation, response to spontaneous events, and the incorporation of ambient sound, all common to jazz and modern music, as well as “wild” landscape design.
