About

I spend my summers on a large lake in NW Montana, Flathead Lake; one afternoon, reading down by the lake, I began to notice the deliciously pitched plops of gurgles with which the piece opens and was able to set my microphone down in amongst the rocks, very close to the water. Later that year, visiting a friend's installation at the Hoboken Ferry Terminal in New Jersey, I was struck by the sounds the metal gangplanks generated and returned on a windy day. Each time a boat passed on the Hudson or a ferry docked nearby, the gangplanks' overlapping sections produced intricate textures, resonating strongly in the hanger-like terminal. Buoyant is the interplay o these sources, together with a recording I made in 1999 of a boat basin on Lake Como, Italy. [Notes by Annea Lockwood]
