    Presented by Springboard for the Arts and Corrector Records, ‘quiet citadel’ is an
    opportunity for Fergus Falls residents to explore the Kirkbride through sound.

    Former Hinge Arts artist Ryan Evans is hosting a gathering to share ‘quiet citadel’ at the
    Kirkbride on Saturday, April 11 at 1:00pm. Those interested are invited to meet at the
    tower for the 1-hour event, which includes a short welcome followed by a guided
    walking meditation of the Kirkbride campus.

    The ‘quiet citadel’ project includes a full-length album of relaxing electronic music as
    well as a zine that showcases the history of the Kirkbride and prompts ideas about its
    future. Evans created the album based on music workshops he hosted with Fergus
    Falls residents, field recordings he gathered while at the Kirkbride, and samples from a
    cassette tape he found at the Fergus Falls Salvation Army. He created the zine based
    on his historical research at the Otter Tail County Historical Society.

    All attendees at the April 11 event will receive a free copy of the zine. The album,
    released by Corrector Records, will be available for purchase.
