The Glass House Visitor Center located on 199 Elm Street in New Canaan has announced a performance series called Night Sounds that parallels the seven part sculpture-in-residence exhibition Night (1947 – 2015). Guests join the performer and program curators for a live performance on the Glass House campus. Night Sounds is guest curated by Jordan Stein.
Night Sounds #6 will feature a performance by Bill Orcutt alongside the sixth installment of Night (1947 – 2015), the sculpture Arm (2014) by artist Kevin Beasley.
Bill Orcutt's sound is a stuttered reimagining of blues guitar. One can hear familiar Southern folk scales between Orcutt's jagged solo acoustic phrases, pulling and pushing melodies into unresolved fragments that eventually come unmoored in vast and satisfying note-torrents.
The performance is from 3 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. on June 28, 2015 and tickets are $50. To purchase a ticket go to
