Art History Lecture Series presents River Sound As Handicraft: Annea Lockwood’s River Sound Maps Beyond the Hydrophonic with Dr. Andrea Bohlman

Since the 1960s, composer Annea Lockwood has been crafting a sound archive of rivers that has coursed along many routes: tape exchanges with friends, listening exercises for students, and indoor and outdoor sound installations. This Art History Lecture Series talk explores her recording practice and technique, paying particular attention to two large scale river portraits (of the Danube and the Hudson) to show how the slow labor of tape recording and editing situates rivers as always more than water.
