HIMMEL WALL MEMORIAL IMPROVISATION




This week a simple improvisation for a nearly 25 year old memorial, a vestige of the Cold War, designed like a literal "iron curtain" or perhaps a segment of the Berlin Wall located in Himmel Park, Tucson, Arizona, U.S.A.

The memorial was mic'ed, amplified and played with implements of mass percussion.

Nice acoustics and plenty of irony considering that today the Soviet Union is a ghost, many of the countries listed on the memorial are democratic or headed that way, the Berlin Wall has become a souvenir item for tourists and America is building a literal iron curtain of her own along the southern border.

Sound files for download of the Himmel Park Wall Improvisations will be posted on the Glenn Weyant Facebook page next week.  (Be sure to find: Glenn Weyant in Tucson. Others abound....)
