Water at Battery Townsley
Up in the hills of the Marin Headlands, atop the vast oceans lies a structure steeped with history, Battery Townsley at Fort Cronkhite. Artists explore concepts of water using the extreme resonant spaces to amplify sounds. Artist Danishta Rivero uses her invented instrument the Hydrophonium to create sonic atmospheric improvisations. Sound artist Krys Bobrowski conducts a symphonic experience with her Gliss Glass, a water instrument of her own design that is drained and filled while played. Artist Zachary James Watkins composes a water performance that will reverberate through the tunnels of the fortification.
NOTE: Please park in the Rodeo Beach Parking Area at the end of Mitchell Road closest to fire road gate and arrive at least 30 minutes before performance time. There is a 20-minute uphill hike from the Rodeo Beach parking lot to the Battery. This is an outdoor event on top of hill overlooking the ocean and can be quite windy and foggy. Please bring blankets, warm clothes and proper shoe attire. No restrooms are at the site so please use facilities before hiking up.
