The River Is Within Us
The piece is constructed from more than 60 site specific recordings gathered and collected from the city of Isfahan. It includes sounds from the Zayandeh-roud river, sounds from around the famous bridges, from people singing and performing music under the bridges, as well as fragments of audio recordings from the news and from demonstrations on the water crisis in Isfahan. The spoken words that you hear are from Isfahanis sharing their thoughts about the river, how it has impacted their lives and the energy and spirit of the city. The recordings were combined together to bring this installation piece to life.
