The Coastal Futures Conservatory at the University of Virginia presents a symposium featuring Chris Chafe & Greg Niemeyer, Joyce To & Louis Pena, Jeremy Muller, and the EcoSono Ensemble. The symposium will center around issues of coastal futures at play in The Metered Tide, a work by Chris Chafe and Greg Niemeyer using sonification of the California Coast. Chafe and Niemeyer will discuss sonification and their collaborative work on sea level rise, and EcoSono Ensemble will perform a new version of the piece.
In addition, Joyce To and Louis Pena from Australia will perform Chorale, a piece based on coral reef data. We will welcome reflections from a team of scholars who will have just completed a three-day field residency at the VCR.
The symposium will begin and end with movements from Matthew Burtner’s Glisten of Places, a contemplative piece for sonified, geotagged sites and field recordings performed by percussionist, Jeremy Muller.
