CIRCADIAN WORLD CLOCK THE WORLD IN A DAY: FIELD RECORDINGS & MUSIC INTERPRETATIONS
David Haney, composer & piano with EBows & mallets Dave Storrs multiple instruments; Bernard Purdie drums featuring – The Circadian Consort

CIRCADIAN WORLD CLOCK from David Haney and Big Round Records is a captivating exploration of nature’s musical landscape. In this groundbreaking recording project, Haney challenges participants from around the world to submit 2-3 minute field recordings, each recorded at the specific hours of the day prescribed by the monastic Liturgy of the Hours. These field recordings from the United States, Russia, Brazil, and many other locales make a powerful statement about our interconnectedness as a species. The soundscapes are interpreted by Haney and his fellow musicians with piano, mallets, EBows, drums, percussion, didgeridoo, and an assortment of brass and reed instruments, offering performances the likes of which inspire reverent contemplation.

David Haney studied composition with Czech-American composer Tomas Svoboda and piano with jazz pianist Eddie Wied. The following artists have worked and recorded with David: Roswell Rudd, Julian Priester, John Tchicai, Steve Swell, Roy Campbell, Bud Shank, Wolter Weirbos, Han Bennink, Andrew Cyrille, Bernard Purdie, Marvin Bugulu Smith, Gerry Hemingway, Dylan Van de Schiff, Buell Neidlinger, Dominic Duval, Adam Lane, Michael Bisio, Paul Blaney, Perry Robinson, Vinny Golia, Daniel Carter, Kirk Knuffke, Johannes Bauer.

These presentations are part of a monthly series by our members. They are typically held the second Monday of every month. For more information on the series, please see https://cascadiacomposers.org/monthly-presentations/
