Breadths of Listening at Twilight

Gelsey Bell

Gelsie Bell cemetery

May 18, 2021 , 6:00pm 8:00pm

In this special site-specific program—part walking tour, part performance—participants are led through Green-Wood’s winding paths and roads to encounter music embedded in and responding to the bucolic spring landscape. Scattered across the Cemetery’s rolling hills and in the Catacombs, celebrated improvisers Gelsey Bell (voice), Shayna Dunkleman (percussion), gamin (piri and saenghwang), Darius Jones (alto saxophone), Erin Rogers (tenor saxophone), and David Watson (great highland bagpipe) will perform three sets of unamplified duets that investigate sound over distance. Conceived by Bell and created for this unique time in New York City, the performances are inspired by how we have renegotiated distance in the face of the pandemic and celebrate our ability to begin to join together again. Tour guides will share select stories of Green-Wood permanent residents along the way. Songbirds at dusk, if not bats after dark, are sure to offer their own musical performances.

This tour begins near Green-Wood’s Main Entrance at 25th Street and Fifth Avenue.
