About the Grant

$25,000 to support Wally Cardona and Douglas Fanning's March April (MAP 2004), a dance using 100 boom-boxes, a drum and bugle corps.

About the Project

Empty. Full. Small. Grand. Volume. Multiplicity. Four dancers navigate the notion of scale alongside a new sound score by Phil Kline, a musical artist whose work stretches from avant-garde "classical" music to ambient electronica, occupying a singular niche in the new music world. The projected score will feature Ethel String Quartet, a boombox symphony, and one other surprise sound source. Cardona’s interest is in how people – on a grand and intimate scale – make sense of the world and each other. Perception is key. Collaborators include Douglas Fanning (visuals), Roderick Murray (lighting), and Jill Anderson (clothing). The total length of the evening is approximately sixty minutes (no intermission), and Ethel String Quartet is available for live performances.

Scheduled performances:

September 2005 - Portland Institute for Contemporary Art's TBA Festival
December 2005 - The Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival
