‘Song of Air’ Reception

August 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Jen Reimer is a Montreal-based sound artist who has made art from unique soundscapes all over the world. She discovered the Humboldt Water Tower while she was looking for accessible “audible oddities” across the country.

In May 2022, Jen spent three days recording the sound of the wind as it activated the resonant frequencies of the tower. The tower became a resonant filter, transforming the wind’s movement into musical tones, timbre, rhythms, and subsonic vibrations. There are melodies in the air.

Jen has used her auditory discoveries to create a site-specific composition and live performance piece called Song of Air which she will be performing at the Tower on Thursday, August 31.

To learn more about Jen’s process, we are holding a reception at the Gallery at 7pm on Wednesday, August 30. This will be a chance to meet Jen and to better understand this performance piece. The reception is free and everyone is welcome!
