Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Dozens of art admirers gathered at the Delgany bridge by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver Friday night to view "Virga: The Sound Performance," a work that featured sound designed to complement Virga, the art piece on the bridge. Patrick Marold, who designed Virga, was excited about the collaboration with composer Morton Waller. "I am honored that he would even consider composing an original sound work as a response to my sculpture," he said. "I know that he has spent extended periods of time watching the sculpture transition with the changing light as it reveals different characteristics throughout the day, and I can hear the inspiration in the piece he has created. What he has done is truly original and rare, by taking bagpipes completely out of their context and utilizing their harmonic capabilities to reveal a chromatic sound work that I think will affect any listener."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
