The Madison quintet Graminy will premiere a major new work entitled Germinations – A Blue Grass Symphony at this year’s Fermentation Fest.
As part of a new Wormfarm/Graminy collaboration called Decomposition, Graminy will perform their original composition in the key of D. It will be a ‘D’-composition in more ways than one. Invited composers from around the region will respond to Germinations by decomposing it—that is, creating something new out of its themes. Thus, artistic processes will echo natural processes.
Graminy is a pioneering group in “class-grass” music, a style that brings together classical and grassroots traditions, from Bach to bluegrass, from Copland to Celtic, from Gershwin to Native American, from Kodaly to klezmer, and more. Drawing on all these styles, Graminy composes and arranges all its music, which includes lots of quick changes, generous improvisations, and occasional singing.
Graminy’s music focuses on themes of ecology and place. The name “Graminy” derives from the botanical name for the grass family, Gramineae, as the group’s music draws on the entire family of grassroots traditions, from all places and ecologies.
The concert will take place Saturday, Oct. 13 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. at St. Boniface Church, 105 Church St, Lime Ridge. 1 block West and North of Branding Iron Roadhouse, Stop # 26 on the DTour.
Cost is $8 for adults and $5 for kids. Pay at the door.
