Karl Burkheimer's In Situ commissioned for ALL RISE
Lori Goldston, Hymn for the Mammoth Tusk
ALL RISE presents a new site-inspired work by composer and cellist Lori Goldston, performing with Mike Gamble (guitar), Dan Sasaki (drum set and percussion), Greg Campbell (drum set, percussion and horn), Clyde Petersen (projections) and Corey Brewer (projections and voice). "Hymn for the Mammoth Tusk" is a metaphysical core sample, a meditation on a small patch of city and the lives that pass through it.
Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher based in Seattle. A deep, untidy beauty propels her voice as a cellist which is —amplified or acoustic— full, textured, committed and original. A perpetual inquirer, she wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography, performing in clubs, cafes, galleries, arenas, concert halls, sheds, ceremonies, barbecues, and stadiums; she toured with Nirvana and appeared with them in “Unplugged in New York”.
Her work has been commissioned by and/or performed at the Kennedy Center, Portland’s Time Based Art Festival, WNYC, Northwest Film Forum, On the Boards, Frye Art Museum, Seattle International Film Festival, Bumbershoot, Crossing Border Festival, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, Joe's Pub, the Stone, Wayward Music Series, Oregon State University, University of Chicago Film Studies Center, One Reel Film Festival and throughout the U.S. and Europe. She has received awards from Meet the Composer, Artist Trust, 4 Culture and Seattle Arts Commission, and has taught at the University of Washington, EMP, Idyllwild Arts Academy, the Vera Project and the Bush School.
