HMM 01 – 01 – 24 Old Growth Playback

On today’s Hudson Mohawk Magazine special, composer and environmental sound artist Lisa Schonberg presents four new compositions to guest listeners live in the studio. The listeners were asked to respond with feelings, thoughts, and comments while listening. The program feautures the listeners’ reactions to the music in real time, and Lisa’s explanations of how she wrote these sound works. The four sound works are from a project called Old Growth Playback, which focuses on sounds beyond human hearing in forest environments, and asks us, “What will the old growth forests of the future sound like?”. The works originated with an artist residency at HJ Andrews Experimental Forest in Blue River, Oregon, and has also included urban environmental listening workshops and events in Troy, NY, such as this program. Lisa Schonberg lives in Troy, NY. Old Growth Playback is made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts
with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature through the Media Arts Assistance Fund, a regrant partnership of NYSCA and Wave Farm.
