ABOUT THE MUSIC

For Ear to the Earth 2010, Jennifer Stock is creating an installation that focuses on the shifting light of Brooklyn waterways. With the quality of light always changing across its surface, Waterfront Brooklyn gives residents an unusual vista, creating a compelling, shifting atmosphere in a city often challenged for unrestricted access to light.



From Jennifer Stock's Interlunation

Liz Phillip's Here / Hear: Manhattan is an Island asks: Can we listen to Manhattan's waters as if in a rowboat? Can we record the tides from every direction as they wash against the island? Dedicated to the memory of Maryanne Amacher, this installation uses synchronized recordings taken from multiple locations on the water and plays them back through transducers of wood, shells and bamboo – evoking the places where the recordings took place and memories of the water there.
