Woodhenge

Joe Catalano

Scored for guitar, bass clarinet, marimba, and harp, this piece takes its musical structure from the celestial siting rings found at the pre-Columbian archaeological dig at Cahokia Mounds in south-western Illinois, at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. This site contains the largest pre-Columbian structure north of Mexico City and, also, the remains of a Native American city which population of over 50,000 constituted one of the largest pre-European settlements in North America. This musical piece is a meditation of the uses of time as recorded at this site by the transit of the stars and planets overhead. (Recommend purchase of two copies for performance.)
