Circular Clearing: New work from Dylan Bolles

dylanCircular Clearing is new work for natural bore flutes and drum composed and performed by Dylan Bolles in residence at Chalk Hill. It finds its inspiration in the rhythms and textures of Brooks Creek, the Russian River, local wildlife and the contours of the land itself, and borrows formal ideas from Korean San-jo music. Additional projects can be found at Bottomless Well Arts.

  • laziness and creative block
  • feeling rushed by pressing deadlines”
