Bowerbird is pleased to present Ensemble Terrain (Theo Bleckmann*, Jodie Landau, Ashley Bathgate, and Jacob Cooper) performing selections from Jacob Cooper’s acclaimed album “Terrain” (Amsterdam Records, 2020). “Terrain” displays Cooper’s passion for kinetic collaboration. He worked intensively with three poets who created original text for each work, and developed the music alongside vocalists Theo Bleckmann and Jodie Landau, as well as cellist Ashley Bathgate, who each bring electric energy and a penchant for defying musical boundaries to the project. This concert will feature works from this album, as well as arrangements of works by Meredith Monk, David Lang, Supertramp, and others.
*Unfortunately Theo Bleckmann will not be able to perform on this evening’s concert as was previously planned. We’re excited, however, to announce that the extraordinary vocalist Thann Scoggin (member of Roomful of Teeth) will be performing with the ensemble in his stead.
