Fracking Music

Posted: January 12, 2012 in Fracking

Fracking Music.  As heard on The State of Things (WUNC) today.  From their website:

“Mark Little, known in the world of music as MGL, will present a new sound composition inspired by the Ackland Museum’s new exhibition, “The Spectacular of Vernacular.” In keeping with the spirit of the collection, this new work seeks to make art out of the mundane. The narrative of the composition was inspired by Mark’s day job as a geologist and his interest in hydraulic fracturing, a process which may soon be used to produce natural gas here in North Carolina. The sounds of the composition are site recordings from the installation of the exhibition and even during the opening itself. Plus, Mark plays the saxophone. This work will be presented Friday, January 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. during the opening reception for “The Spectacular of Vernacular” at the Ackland Museum, but first Mark Little joins host Frank Stasio in our studio to discuss fracking, music and the mundane.”
