Next Stop was originally conceived as a Cincinnati-specific public sound art piece that eventually would be installed at different locations along the Cincinnati Streetcar route. Both Tyler Niemeyer and I wrote short string quartet movements based on both the location of the streetcar stops and little musical tidbits from the The Goossens Fanfares (commissioned during the 1942-43 Cincinnati Symphony Orchestras season).
The location of the streetcar stops include:
Contemporary Arts Center
School for the Creative and Performing Arts
This project was funded by the Graduate Summer Undergraduate Mentoring Program at the University of Cincinnati in 2012.
