Ashes and Snow

Ashes and Snow, the photography/film exhibition by Gregory Colbert, has continued its worldwide migration since its Venice, Italy premiere in 2002. Traveling in the Nomadic Museum, the exhibit came to New York in the spring of 2005 and most recently stopped in Santa Monica, CA (January–May 2006.) This edition of New Sounds is filled with music from Ashes and Snow, including works by cellist David Darling and Robert Een. Also, there’s music by composer Lisa Gerrard, (one half of the duo Dead Can Dance), who has written the scores to several different films like “Whale Rider” and “Gladiator,” to name a few. Plus, electro-acoustic Middle Eastern and Indian hybrid works by Canadian producer, engineer and virtuoso guitarist Michael Brook, along with music by the Armenian duduk master Djivan Gasparyan, and others.
