As the summer regrettably comes to a close, Groupmuse is taking to the beach for our next Massivemuse on Saturday, September 9th! We'll be catching those final rays of sun and summer vibes at Fort Tilden beach, in a building that was left over from Fort Tilden's military base phase in the early to mid-1900s, and which now lives as an art gallery as part of the Rockaway Artists Alliance.

Fittingly, to consecrate the end of the sunshine, we'll be hearing a beloved local Groupmuse string quartet perform Franz Schubert's haunting testament to death, Death and the Maiden. If you don't already know this piece, it's safe to assume your soul needs to be in attendance.

This dreamy eve costs $15 (and $10 for Supermusers!) and there will be drinks for sale for sippin' on. We'll gather in the main gallery space and cozy up on the floor alongside the ensemble to drift off together into the dark beyond.

P.S.: It should go without saying, but we HIGHLY encourage 'musers coming from far and wide to spend the day at the beach beforehand; it's just a 10-minute walk away from the building we'll be 'musing in. On your walk over from the beach, you'll also pass a MoMa PS1 exhibit called "The Red House," which is a large-scale piece of art by Austrian artist Katharina Grosse. We recommend indulging in both before settling into the music.

The visual and aural arts have always been connected throughout time. Instead of brushes and canvases, we'll use our bows and strings to paint "Death and the Maiden," a motif often depicted in Renaissance art.

There are times when we don't need to paint anything. The world around us is already a canvas on which beautiful sights have been painted on -- the mountains, the fields...the beach, the ocean.

Liam Elliot is a Canadian composer who paints soundscapes with natural sounds in the environment. His piece "Mer" (for string quartet, narrator, and prerecorded track) is a setting of poems by Sue Goyette, written in 2013 about the people of Nova Scotia and the ocean around them. At groupmuses, we listen to the sounds around us here and now, but Liam transports us to Halifax, Nova Scotia with the sounds he recorded there.

Hi all!

I hope you're getting excited for tomorrow! I wanted to send over some directions to help you get to the sTudio 7 Gallery (T-7 Gallery) at the Rockaway Artists Alliance in Breezy Point at the Fort Tilden National Recreational Area. Please see below:

Being in a National Park, they do not have an address per se but are right at the intersection of Murray Road and Hero Road. This does come up on Google Maps and GPS.

Train:

The nearest public transportation stop is at Beach 169th Street and Rockaway Point Blvd. Buses come from Brooklyn and also Beach 116th Street subway station in Rockaway. It's a 1/4 mile (a 10-15 minute walk) to the gallery from there.

If you are driving, there is parking. Driving directions are as follows:

From Brooklyn - take the Marine Parkway Bridge into Rockaway. Stay right and exit towards Breezy Point. Go to the first traffic light after the bridge. There will be a brick building and a Riis Landing sign on you right and a Whale Watching sign on your left.

Make a left at the light into the Fort Tilden entrance. Follow the road to the Chapel building. Make a right. Follow that road. You pass a large parking on area on your right and a little league baseball field on your left. Across from field is the RAA T-7 Gallery. It is the last building on that road, before a Do Not Enter sign.

T-7 is a long, yellow-ish sided building with a wooden deck and ramp on the front. You have arrived.

---
From Queens - Take Woodhaven Blvd south. It turns Cross Bay Blvd. Follow to and cross the Cross Bay Bridge. Stay right and exit right towards Riis Park/Beach Channel Drive. Stay to your right on Beach Channel Drive. Jamaica Bay will always be on your right. When you see the Marine Parkway Bridge stay right. Signs should say Breezy Point and also Fort Tilden.

You will go over a slight hill. Go to the second traffic light after the hill. There will be a brick building and a Riis Landing sign on you right and a Whale Watching sign on your left.

Make a left at the light into the Fort Tilden entrance. Follow the road to the Chapel building. Make a right. Follow that road. You pass a large parking on area on your right and a little league baseball field on your left. Across from field is the RAA T-7 Gallery.

It is the last building on that road, before a Do Not Enter sign. T-7 is a long, yellow-ish sided building with a wooden deck and ramp on the front. You have arrived.

Hope this helps, and don't forget to catch some sun at the beach before we kick things off!

All best,

Emily

Looking forward to tonight! Since a couple of us are coming from Manhattan, I wanted to make sure this tip also gets to everyone - this was included in a previous email from Emily, on which subway to take (the A!).

Pro tip:

To get there, you can take the A train directly to the Beach 67 St stop in the Rockaways and then make your way west past Jacob Riis Park and into Fort Tilden beach area. When you hit a MoMa PS1 exhibit called "The Red House," you're nearly there.

Alternatively, there are dollar vans that run along Flatbush Avenue and you can request that they drop you off at Jacob Riis, which will bring you within walking distance of the sTudio 7 Gallery. "To easily identify a registered van, one can look for three distinct tags: a NYC Commuter icon, a DOT License # beginning with B, and a license plate number beginning in T and ending in C." - BK Reader

Hi folks,

Thanks for coming last night! A huge thanks to Dan and the Rockaway Artist Alliance for hosting us, to Emily and Sam for creating a fantastic experience for all through the magic of Groupmuse!

I wanted to pass along some information about the composer, and also about the poet whose beautiful words you heard in "Mer."

Composer: Liam Elliot --> https://www.liamelliotmusic.com/

Poet: Sue Goyette
"Mer" was a musical setting of her poetry from OCEAN --> http://www.gaspereau.com/bookInfo.php?AID=0&AISBN=9781554471225

See you next time!
Cheers,
Mosa
