Alvin Curran
Endangered Species

This concert is one of the events that are a part of Bergen Kunsthall’s exhibition File Under Freedom, on view February 5 – March 27, 2022.

ENDANGERED SPECIES is a work for keyboards and computer and primitive acoustic instruments which I have been been “composing” for nearly 50 years…

Essentially it is a collection of over 3000 sound files of humans, animals, machines, events, people, and musics from all over the planet – an immense sound library, a raw musical composition – which I use in part to create spontaneously-made performances, as if my fingers could “play-the-world.”

This concert is a part of the File Under Freedom exhibition at Bergen Kunsthall.
