Precession of the Day: The World of Mary Nohl

  • 800 Langdon St.
  • Madison, WI 53706

"Milwaukee-based songwriter and performer Marielle Allschwang, whose work has been called “aurally-enthralling and
emotionally-arresting,” enlists The Visitations to present Precession of a Day: The World of Mary Nohl—a song cycle
and multimedia performance exploring the unconventional life and artist-built environment of Mary Nohl (1914-2001).
Utilizing a variety of musical styles and approaches—informed by the pastoral symphonies and mountain folk music
of Allschwang's Germanic and Filipino roots, commingled with Handel’s arias, highlife, metal, and new wave—alongside
a film composed from intimate footage in and around Nohl’s home on the shore of Lake Michigan—Allschwang mines
her early childhood encounters with and subsequent return to Nohl’s environment to explore the biographical, visual,
and social aspects of Nohl’s multifaceted life, work, and legacy."
