Water Music: juried exhibition in sound

Fig. 8 – “Compressed and rarefied air particles of sound waves”, in “Water-Waves and Sound-Waves” by Joseph Norman Lockyer, ‘Popular Science Monthly’ Volume 13, June 1878. Public domain.

Join us for an evening of new music and sound works inspired by water.

Water and sound have a great deal in common. Internally, they flow within us and leave evidence we are alive. Conceptually, we find them confronting a series of dualities- meditative to overwhelming, motionless to pulsating, delicate to violent, orderly to chaotic,gloomy to cheerful. Geographically – and particularly on our Delmarva Peninsula – they surround us. But perhaps their greatest commonality is that in nature they travel by the same form: a wave. The goal of Water Music is to present a raw experience of sound anchored in the concept of water. The results of this exhibition distill the essence of each and explore their many forms.
