The Historical Society of Pennsylvania commissioned five composers to create short musical compositions that respond to the finding aid (a document containing detailed information about a specific collection of papers or records within an archive) for the Mary Elizabeth Hallock Greenewalt Papers. Greenewalt was a musician herself, as well as an inventor. Watch one of the commissioned works above, Maurice Wright’s “Light-Color Play,” which utilizes a painted board by Greenwalt.
Commissioned by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania as part of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage's *No Idea Is Too Ridiculous* project.
