Southland Ensemble presents the chance poetry of Jackson Mac Low. Mac Low’s dedication to systems of composition - which included chance, indeterminacy, and simultaneous performance - allowed him to create works of extreme openness. His poems represent a moment in poetry where truths of authorship were called into question and the very boundaries of music and poetry were pulled taut.
“I myself think that if it is a connection and it does something, it’s some kind of cause but it’s different from the time-linear cause going from past to future. It’s across any present, between any two things coexisting. … And I think that one thing that systematic chance does allow… is for something to happen on that synchronous plane.” - Jackson Mac Low

THE READER’S CHORUS is pleased to present an evening of performance throughout the rooms, chambers, hallways, niches, stairways, passages, and openings of the Museum of Jurassic Technology as the culmination of a generous invitation to engage with the Museum itself.
We invite you to move among our many voices stationed within the exhibitions and curiosities, as a chorus emerges from the abundance of texts and vertiginous spaces of the Museum.
The Reader’s Chorus consists of composers and musicians, visual artists and filmmakers, writers and poets. Inspired by the possibilities of timbre, rhythm, and spatialization with a group of speaking voices, Sara Roberts and Jordan Biren have recruited several editions of dedicated players to write for, experiment with, and perform the sound of reading.
