At once a picture of stasis and motion, calm and turbulence, nourishment and destruction, rivers are a contradiction. Topography is shaped and reshaped, communities are separated and created. A critical source of water and food; a vital means of transportation, energy, bathing, irrigation; even a central figure to religious narrative and practice rivers carry on with no regard for human beings, and yet their presence shapes humanity in profound ways. It is small wonder that rivers have captured our cultural, philosophical, and spiritual imaginations for millennia.
A six-movement work written for prepared piano, prepared cello (The Brooks-Delaney Duo), dance (Lea Fulton, Gabrielle Revlock, Megan Wilson Stern), and film (Ben Stamper), RIVERS explores the ideas above through the lens of the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers, and the dramatic impact that they have had on a city recognized as the cradle of liberty and the birthplace of America: Philadelphia.
