WILLIAM CLOSE AND THE EARTH HARP COLLECTIVE

Monmouth University Pollak Theater

400 Cedar Avenue
West Long Branch, NJ 07764

WILLIAM CLOSE AND THE EARTH HARP COLLECTIVE Concurrently primitive and futuristic, The Earth Harp incorporates sculpting, architecture and sound design, standing at the crossroads of music and art. The Earth Harp was built and developed by William Close, a New York native and alumni at the Art Institute of Chicago. William performs as part of The Earth Harp Collective �" a team of musicians, dancers, aerialists and artists. While studying at the Institute, Close realized in order to succeed he had to do something that no one else had done. An avid musician who played in garage bands as a teenager, he started concocting then building his own instruments. His background as a sailor served as inspiration for the use of natural sounds �" the wind whipping the sails, the sound of the rigs flapping and being pulled tight. “I’ve always seen and heard the world as an instrument,” says Close. “Just hearing nature’s tones inspires me.”
