“riverMOUTH” (in development) cultivates a layered understanding of the mouth of the Humber Cobechenonk river — historical, ecological, cultural and personal — through a geo-located AR audio work. Overlapping circles of geo-tagged AR audio offer the listener new perspectives on (possibly) familiar terrain. Circling subtly through time and space, sound transports us from the whispering of bullrushes to the rush of a saxophone blast, from the racket of a passing streetcar to a groove drummed on a fallen log, a tumble of words making their poetic mark like the meandering paths of beetles.
riverMOUTH is inspired by water and our desire to nurture sustainable, life- giving connection to the planet.
