Soundwave ((6)): The Astonishing Sea
An audio-visual performance event by Cheryl E. Leonard and Oona Stern, Mem1 and Elia Vargas
Out beyond our sights and minds comes 'The Astonishing Sea'. Special sound and music performances reveal hidden worlds happening on our water planet. Music duo Mem1 performs 'Mascaret', featuring one of North America's few tidal bores where incoming tides travel against the river's current; sound artist Cheryl E. Leonard and visual artist Oona Stern with guest musician Philip Greenlief return from 'The Polar Oceans' to weave tales with sounds from natural-object instruments made from Antarctic bones, shells and rocks, interspersing field recordings, videos, drawings and paintings from the Arctic and Antarctic that reveal alarming climate change; while artist Elia Vargas conjures 'Liquid Landscapes,' a performance installation where audiences can walk through projected mist and sound that meld the digital and the natural, and water and light, while confronting profound ideas about our future technological ecosystems in comparison to our natural world.
