MoM I: Only memory of forgetting
Joel Puckett world premiere: I enter the earth
with Laura Ward, piano
Sunday, June 14, 2015 @ 4pm
The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill

8855 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118

Joel Puckett: I enter the earth
William Brooks: in memoriam reducere studemus
Matthew Brown: Another Lullaby for Insomniacs

An extraordinary colorist, Joel is setting words of a !Kung shaman describing the dance trance of a healing ritual in which song gives power.  In William Brooks' setting of Pierre Joris’ poem about the death of Anton Webern, in memoriam reducere studemus, we again ponder life - the here and after - while Matthew Brown’s setting of the wistfulAnother Lullaby for Insomniacs is very much about the here and now: loss and longing pervade.
