SHH! is a new concert series featuring the work of nine local composers who have composed and arranged quiet music specifically for the Library.

Spend time in the Library while listening to live, ambient music. SHH! concerts will be held the second Sunday of each month: October 14, November 11, and December 9. Performances will take place at different — sometimes surprising — locations throughout the Main Library. 


Artist About the Artist

Hoofless


Imitating the sound of pages turning, Hoofless will present a specially crafted, gently rhythmic set of new music created just for the library and its patrons.

“The intimacy of acoustic instruments, arresting vocals and the almost sacred quality of Hoofless’ music allow audiences to become enveloped in the sound and performance rather than merely to observe casually.” – SLUG Magazine

Darlene Castro


Darlene Castro will present a new piece for clarinet and flute which plays with the unique space of the library atrium. Poetry will be worked into the instrumental sound world.

Darlene Castro (b. 1993) is a composer, researcher, and classical guitarist living in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her music has been performed and commissioned by ensembles such as the Runnin' Fl'UTES', Salty Cricket Composers Collective, and PANTS (Wind Quintet). Currently, she serves as the executive director of the Louis Moreau Institute for New Music Performance and is working on her PhD in music composition at the University of Chicago.

Ashkan Fakhrtabatabaie


Bridging acoustic and electronic sound worlds, Fakhrtabatabaie’s new composition for electric guitar, violin, and live electronics uses beat frequencies (formed by the micromanipulation of specific musical pitches) as a key structural element.

Tabatabaie’s artistic and scholarly works are interwoven. Thanks to his different backgrounds, ranging from music composition to engineering, and his exploration of music psychology, he has reached an interdisciplinary approach between science and art. Currently, he is a composition Ph.D. student and a graduate teaching assistant teaching music theory and music technology courses at the University of Utah. He has also studied at Tehran University of Art and Azad University and taught at the Iran University of Applied Science.

About the library

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie (see related titles in our catalog) in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The six-story curving, walkable wall embraces the public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium. A multi-level reading area along the glass lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. A roof-top garden, accessible by walking the crescent wall or the elevators, offers a 360 degree view of the Salt Lake Valley. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the library and the crescent wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
