1 General Description

The River is Part III of our Miriam Trilogy

Abbie Conant: performer, singer, trombonist

William Osborne: music, text, video

Premiere: Munich Biennale 1990

For performance-artist, and a recording of her voice, four trombones, and piano

Length: 17 minutes

 

Miriam was the older sister of Moses who watched from afar when he was placed in the Nile to float away and where he was eventually found by the Pharaoh's daughter. "The River" is derived from that story. (Part I of our Miriam Trilogy is here, and Part II here.)
