Acclaimed Pianist Sarah Cahill In Residence at the Noguchi Museum

February 24, 2016 @ 10:00 am - February 28, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

February 24-28, 2016, 10am-5pm

For one week in February, the chill and grey skies of winter will dissipate for visitors to the Noguchi Museum’s ground-floor galleries, where internationally celebrated pianist Sarah Cahill will take up residence, performing Mamoru Fujieda’s stunning cycle of short pieces titled Patterns of Plants throughout the Museum’s opening hours.

A masterpiece by one of the leading postminimalist composers, Patterns of Plants (1996-2011) represents an extraordinary fusion of nature and technology. To create the piece, Fujieda measured the electrical impulses on the leaves of plants, using the “Plantron,” a device created by botanist/artist Yuji Dogane, and converted the data he obtained into sound with Max, a visual programming language used for music and multimedia. He then identified musical patterns within the sound, and used them as the basis for these miniatures.


Presented by Noguchi Museum.
