From Epstein's description:
Taking the Old Town School's new logo as its starting point, the performers of A Human Sound Sculpture form a circle with three openings. The circle formation's long history in the folk tradition used for song, celebration, play-game, and dance, reflects a non-hierarchical sense of community.
The three openings in the circle (similar to the two openings of the OTSFM logo) allow for new players to enter with their sound contribution while others leave, reforming and redeveloping the circle and sound world by its shifting personnel. The continuously changing personnel of the circle mirrors the continuously changing elements of a folk song passed down over time. Through these transformations, variation occurs, ultimately creating new versions of original initiatives.Szold Hall, with a suggested five-dollar donation.
