The second meeting of the Artists' Group was held on Sunday, May 6 from approximately 3:00-6:00 PM. The meeting was hosted by Nancy Beckman, who, despite battling laryngitis and general malaise, graciously opened her home and provided refreshments.
The meeting consisted almost entirely of an extended sounding. As per the request of our hostess, lots were drawn to determine the order in which each participant would begin sounding. The general form of the sounding was, at first, a rotation of duets which segued into a full-ensemble conclusion. After the sounding, the group discussed various aesthetic issues on new music.
Those attending the May 6 meeting were: Nancy Beckman, Tom Bickley, Brenda Hutchinson, Brad Fischer, Katherine Setar, Marianne MacDonald, Toyoji Tomita, and Lisa Mischka (please excuse any misspelled names!).
