From Poughkeepsie to Paris: Percussionist Seeks Funding for Project

Posted By on Tue, Mar 26, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Joseph Bertolozzi plays the Mid-Hudson Bridge.

Chronogram readers might recall my March 2009 profile of Poughkeepsie percussionist Joseph Bertolozzi, who composed and recorded a suite of music that uses the Mid-Hudson Bridge as an instrument. In case you’re not among them, here it is.

Well, it seems Bertolozzi is now on the way to realizing his longer-held dream of playing another original work on an even more iconic structure: the Eiffel Tower. Titled Tower Music, the piece will be performed and recorded this spring on site at the Paris landmark. And to help bring this unique project to a metaphorical crescendo, Bertolozzi is currently running a Kickstarter campaign. “I have enough to pay, lodge, and fly my core team of four to Paris for two weeks on a bare-bones budget,” explains the composer, who has launched the effort in order to “hire another professional audio/video technician and have a war chest for studio time when I catalog the samples and mix and master the album.” Have a look at the video Bertolozzi produced for Kickstarter, and chip in if you’d like to help make Tower Music a hit.
