Strange Fruit came out of Paul’s 2007 Site-Specific Project, 50 Cello Concerts. The Strange Fruit video is a compilation of performances by Paul of a song by the same name. The performances were held at various locations and edited together to make the wonderful video you are about to watch.
The locations and communities in the video are: Mercerdale Park and Veterans’ Recognition Public Art Project in Mercer Island, Village Theatre and the Salmon Hatchery in Issaquah, the Farmers Market, the Art Museum, and McCormick Park in Bellevue, Herbert Bayer Earthworks Park in Kent, the Light Rail Station in Tukwila, and the Waterfront and Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle.
Strange Fruit is a media based online project. By watching the video, you are attending this event! To learn more about Paul’s 50 Cello Concerts, please visit that project’s website.

Paul Rucker is an interdisciplinary artist (cellist-bassist-composer-visual artist-creator of interactive sound/video installations). Rucker has released two critically acclaimed CDs of his compositions, and he composes new music presented in a way that allows the viewer-listener the opportunity to interact with the work (participants can trigger sounds with the wave of a hand, touch of a finger, or press of a button). His pieces have been on display at Consolidated Works, Motel Motel Motel, Jack Straw New Media Gallery, the Washington State Convention and Trade Center, and On the Boards.
