Ballad of Cyclic Change: Musical compositions that use acoustic kinetic sculptures built from recycled everyday materials as instruments, inspired by the biogeochemical cycles and how they mirror cycles in human lives.

"Ballad of Cyclic Change" is a multimedia collaborative art project with interactive sculptures by Kathy Creutzburg, Mirabai Kwan Yin, Jake Elkin and Aya Hirota, and music by Jake Elkin accompanied by Amy Garapic and Ric Becker. Inspired by the biogeochemical cycles and how they mirror cycles in human lives, we built acoustic kinetic sculptures from upcycled everyday materials and created musical compositions using the sculptures as instruments. By connecting human stories of transition to nature’s cycles we encourage people to feel connected to their planet. We will have several ways you can tell a story of change or transition from your life, if you feel inspired to share. You are invited to play the instruments yourself at the garden following the performance!

Ballad of Cyclic Change is made possible in part with public funds from Creative
Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in
partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC. 


LMCC serves, connects, and makes space for artists and community.
