Event Details

Remember Me: The title of the project Remember Me takes its inspiration from Henry Purcell’s "Dido’s Lament" (aria from the opera Dido and Aeneas). Using sixteen poems written by Ken Mikolowski as source material, Michael Gould created music and artwork that explore outmoded equipment, materials and sounds, delving into his own experiences with loss, illness and, ultimately, his recovery. The poems, artwork and music are all archived in a new book entitled Remember Me published by Alternative Press. Michael Gould- percussion/electronics and Malcolm Tulip- narrator/actor perform the core of what was originally premiered at the UM Residential College ---a multi media production Marion Tränkle- live visual manipulation, Nadja Raszewski- choreography, along with the Tangente Dance Company from Berlin, Germany.

Opening with parts of the Purcell aria sung by Deanna Relyea, mezzo soprano (Artistic Director of Edgefest), Michael and Malcolm add an intense and dramatic moment to the opening night of Edgefest.
