On May 29th Music From Yellow Barn traveled to Marfa, Texas, a small town sixty miles from the US - Mexico border, to present Gérard Grisey's Le Noir de l’Etoile, on a remote desert ranch. This work, based on the discovery of pulsars and composed for six percussionists placed around an audience, had never been performed out-of-doors. 250 people from as close as Marfa and as far as New York witnessed this landmark event.
