clear and calm pools of tremendous depth score Public Deposited
  • Program Note
    clear and calm pools of tremendous depth is a phrase in the park map of Yellowstone National Park describing the park’s signature hot springs. When visiting the springs, I was struck by the vivid turquoise color of the water and how deep these springs went down; seeing the surface triggered my imagination about what the channel looked deeper into the earth. This piece depicts submerging oneself into the clear blue spring and sinking down into the bottom, hundreds or thousands of feet down. Percussion instruments integrate freely from samples from hot springs, boiling water, mysterious, unidentified deep ocean sounds, and other found sounds from the park.
