SIGHTsite/HEARhere #2: Mountain Echoes, River Voices
SIGHTsite | HEARhere #2: Lost River-Green Mountain; Brattleboro, VT
SIGHTsite | HEARhere is a serial project of immersive, audio/visual performances that combine audio/video field recordings of specific locations with original music compositions and large scale, real-time video projections. Performances are created out of material collected by the artists at regional sites familiar to the audience, establishing a connection between the insider-viewer/native and outsider-artist/visitor. Digital, real-time transformation of familiar material in the live performance setting creates a new perspective in which a now “shared familiar” becomes unfamiliar through processes that mediatize, re-contextualize, and ultimately reimagine original material and expectations. In this way, insider and outsider are united in a shared field of new experience. The result is a poetic, cinematic journey, a reflection on nature, relationship, perception, time, place, and memory.
