Glenn McClure at Kilauea Visitor Center

January 11, 2019

Glenn McClure, composer, educator, and data scientist, will be the next artist in residence at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. The artist will present his work during a free lecture and concert at Kīlauea Visitor Center on Fri., Jan. 11, 2019 at 6 p.m.

Originally from rural upstate New York, McClure was influenced by a wide array of musical styles, including gospel, merengue, salsa, and choir. He studied music as a child and in college, and traveled the world as a professional composer. He currently teaches Music and Humanities at Paul Smiths College in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.

“I will work with volcanologists, analyzing current data that describes the volcanoes and listening to the music that emerges from the sonification process,” McClure said of his 30-day residency. “Hiking through the park and other locations on Hawai‘i Island, and improvisation with local musicians, will generate impressions and sounds that I cannot predict. I look forward to hearing the voices of the island through its volcanoes, scientists and musicians,” he said.

During the residency, McClure will share his creative process through blogs, videos, and more at starting in late December.
