For the April performance of Meridian Music’s monthly concert series,  Jessica Pavone will perform recent works for solo viola from her album, Knuckle Under. These works stem from years of concentrated long tone practice and an interest in repetition, song form, and sympathetic vibration. She combines her long tone rituals with delay, understated melodies and sparse lyrical content while continuously experimenting with new forms.

Joining Pavone, Owen Stewart-Robertson seeks to distill the sound sagas composed with VaVatican, a collaborative NYC quartet, in a piece that mixes dense sonic textures, improvisations, and deconstructions of song into a musing on place and personal ghosts. 



With Tim Whiten & Jarrett Earnest

On Friday, March 13th, curator Jarrett Earnest visited eminent image-maker Tim Whiten in his home studio in Toronto, Canada to talk about his recent glass-works, rhythm in drawing and music, and the textures of color and light. 

Working with a variety of mediums -- materials such as wood, paper, mud, glass, bones, and animal remains -- Whiten is among the most prolific contemporary sculptors in his capacity to transform his ritual vision into two and three dimensions.

Meridian Gallery presents this edition of MERIDIAN STUDIO VISITS online in collaboration with Olga Korper, videographer Michael Hurlbut, and Project Manager Peter Foley.

Coming soon.
