Nathan Currier

The Jerome Foundation Directors made a $15,000 grant to the NEW YORK FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS, New York City, as fiscal agent for composer NATHAN CURRIER. These dollars will be used to support the performance of Curriers Gaian Variations, by the Brooklyn Philharmonic in April of 2004. The piece is an expression through music, text, projections and limited staging of the Gaia Hypothesis, initiated in the early 1970s by British scientist James Lovelock. It asserts, in its most simplified expression, that the earth itself is a living organism. Curriers composition will be divided into three acts, encompassing instrumental sections as well as vocal settings of words by Lovelock and Loren Eiseley.
