North Adams, a sound installation created in collaboration with Carrie Dashow, will be included in “Made in North Adams,” a show set to open this Friday November 3, at the Contemporary Artists Center in North Adams, MA.

North Adams is a sound installation featuring an original shape note song that I wrote in 2005 to a text written by Carrie Dashow. The song was a component of the sound for Pent-Up and Under Gone. The North Adams installation features a recording of the song sung by five shape note singers and is accompanied by a score, typeset for the show.
