Jherek Bischoff's Ambient Chamber Orchestra
Seattle composer/musician/producer Jherek Bischoff (Ribbons, Dead Science, Degenerate Art Ensemble, Xiu Xiu, Evangelista) premiers a collection of ten ambient pieces composed during a recent residency at Pt. Townsend’s Fort Warden State Park, specifically written for and recorded in the park’s massive cistern — an empty, two million gallon underground water tank boasting an incredible 45-second reverb. For this event, Jherek will be joined by a live orchestra and sound engineers to help recreate the incredible sonic ambience of the cistern.
