Image of a bison eye and surrounding fur

Georgic is an original evening length musical performance, created by Max Murray PhD Candidate in Music Composition and Critical Media Practice.

Georgic is a composed meditation on the slaughter of the American bison during the late nineteenth century. Each of the three performers is both musician and actor, situated in the field of a work-encompassing fixed media component — pre-recorded sound and image both engulfing and articulated by, the concentrated actions of the live performers moving within a starkly reduced scenic disposition. Created by Max Murray, PhD Candidate in Music Composition and Critical Media Practice. Performed by Richard Craig, Noëlle-Anne Darbellay, and Samuel Stoll

Max Murray was a PhD candidate in music composition with a secondary field of study in Critical Media Practice at Harvard. Max was an artist in residence at the ArtLab to support the development of Georgic. This performance has been rescheduled from 2020.
