photo by dan eframThe Visitation A sound walk inspired by the 2016 appearance of the Harlem Deer. Created for Jackie Robinson Park.
A meditation on the presence of the mythic in the everyday and the uneasy relationship between the built environment and the natural world. A soundscape threaded through with the ethereal voice of the deer becomes a visceral sonic journey through our longing for the solace of the wild, The Visitation charts the histories and hauntings of a particular urban geography, embedded within the geology of time.
