Powerful sonic performances by Daniel Blomquist, Voicehandler, and Chuck Johnson with a string ensemble
Flooded showcases the overpowering nature of water and our natural environment out-of-our-control and by our own design. San Francisco artist Daniel Blomquist investigates floods and flood victims in connection to our sonic memories with a special performance using sounds, memories and music from flooded audio and videotapes exposed to water. These partially lost recordings are composed to let water find a new nostalgia within the sound. Musician and composer Chuck Johnson creates a meditative performance with a string ensemble and analog instruments to explore to our attempts to mediate and harness water by constructing large dams on rivers and the significant ecological and social implications, such as flooding, destruction of watersheds, species extinction, and displaced populations.
