Sympho’s latest immersive exploration and integration of sound and space is TOWER, a concert that placed performers and audience on the double-helix interior staircases of Ann Hamilton’s stunning 80-foot-tall sculpture and arts venue in California, set amidst the picturesque vistas of the Sonoma wine country. The Oliver Ranch Foundation commissioned Sympho to follow in the footsteps of luminaries Meredith Monk and the Kronos Quartet in creating a site-specific work to be performed in the 24-foot-diameter Tower, and the results were spectacular. The event featured newly-commissioned music by composers Christopher Bono, Paul Haas, and Bora Yoon, played by Sympho under Haas’s direction. Stage Direction and Visual Design by Ruth Pongstaphone.
