Metro Art Presents To All Trains - A Soundscape by Celia Hollander
August 26-September 26
Part of An Environmental Music Series from Metro Art and Leaving Records
"To All Trains" takes its inspiration from Union Station as the largest railroad terminal hub in the western part of the U.S. with approximately 110,000 people passing through every day. The piece begins by exploring the perspectives of being an individual navigating a crowd while simultaneously viewing the organized chaos of a swarm from a distance, such as observing a beehive. As Union Station connects travelers to local and international destinations, the soundscape expands in frequency range and instrumentation to explore the harmonies of being a part of a complex system with many moving parts.
Resisting the binary of ‘natural’ and ‘artificial,’ the soundscape merges digital and acoustic sound sources and processes. "To All Trains" is an expression of striving to fathom the full scope of the interdependent networks that our species inhabits, creates and embodies, as a foundation for sustainability.
Presented in collaboration with Leaving Records.
Written, performed, and produced by Celia Hollander
