SOCIAL DISTANCE, HAIKU, AND YOU! A SOUND COLLAGE

One comment

I want to bring to your attention this wonderful aural experience. This is something our Teri steered me toward a few weeks ago. It is a collaboration between the Orange County Museum of Art and Alan Nakagawa. And the public! A call was put out for haiku addressing our current life under pandemic. Over 500 written and recorded haiku were collected. Nakagawa then embedded these recordings in a series of sound collages. These collages are a sensory cornucopia and the haiku run from deeply moving to hilarious to terrifying to thought provoking. I have listened to four of them so far and Part D is, by far, my favorite. I think it is the wealth of children’s voices and the sounds of water that I love. A bonus is that it just happens to be the one where both Teri and I can be heard! How cool is that? Over 500 options and we end up in the same mix! Give a listen, I think you will be glad that you did. And thanks again, Teri, for sharing this opportunity with me. : )

  1. Thank you for posting it, JNaz. You’ve presented it beautifully. Now, I’m going to go in there to listen to some more of it. Such a pleasure to live in Part D with you!
