The Nature of Music

William Paterson music faculty members, students, and alumni spread out along the Red Trail in High Mountain Park Preserve on October 7 for a performance of composer Robert Morris’s immersive, interactive composition, “Oracle.” The piece, designed to explore the connection between music and nature, is meant to be performed in a natural setting. “This was a rare opportunity for people to experience music in a different setting,” says Payton MacDonald, a percussionist and professor of music, who organized the event.
