‘A Sound Map of the Danube,’ Artist Conversation and Installation
October 26, 2018 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In “A Sound Map of the Danube,” Annea Lockwood weaves together field recordings made over the course of several trips along the European subcontinent’s greatest waterway—from its source through the opening of its delta into the Black Sea. The public conversation with Dr. Andrea Bohlman (UNC, Music) will focus on Lockwood’s creative process behind listening to and recording rivers: conversations had while traveling for composition and the sonic qualities of water and wind, metal and sand. Lockwood’s influential career has foregrounded the meditative practices that emerge from close listening as a foundation for healing, environmental awareness, and artistic collectivity.
Annea Lockwood is a New Zealand-born American composer and emerita professor at Vassar College where she taught electronic music for many years. She has created works ranging from sound art and installations to performance art and concert music. Her work often involves recordings of natural found sounds. She has also recorded Fluxus-inspired pieces involving burning or drowning pianos.
