sounds like the amazon…

Every place has its own character and sense of time. This, for composer Karen Power, is most especially palpable in more isolated or unheard places like the Amazon Rainforest.

This piece, which is based entirely on field recordings made by the composer in the Amazon Rainforest in July 2016, explores the possibilities of hearing and approaching the natural structures and harmonies of our world as an integral part of our own existence.

It highlights how, when listened to, these connect us and perhaps offer us a more natural way of being. In a musical sense, sounds like the amazon… aims to bring the natural world and it’s natural sense of time, harmony and structure, to bare on our constructed spaces, performers, audiences and the musical material itself. Bringing the audience on a unique journey, beginning deep in the Amazon, but who can say where we will end up?
