exploring the role of sound in natural and cultural environments
Prairie In the Lake at Northerly Island with Anthony Janas | Sunday, August 13
Northerly By Night soundwalk with Anthony Janas. “Prairie In the Lake” reveals the world of unheard sounds just below the surface of our everyday lives. Using simple technologies for listening the aquatic world of fish, amphibians, and insects reveals an information rich sound environment.
Listening stations at Northerly Island will give you a chance to eavesdrop on the underwater sounds of Lake Michigan. Hear the waves crashing against the breakwalls, the propellers of boats entering the harbor, and other sounds from just below the surface.
You will also have the opportunity to record what you hear to share with friends and family.

"As mostly sessile beings, plants nevertheless actively express themselves through growth and position, whether or not we discern these changes through human perception. Many plants signal via airborne chemicals, sending promiscuous signals into the atmosphere. Communication often focuses on the sender, but what is possible when we consider our role as a receiver? What kind of communication is sense-based? Drawing from biological modes of communication, visitors will be invited into practices of active and sensual listening. Alternating between motion and stillness, along the river and under a canopy of trees, we will attune to both sounds and sensation in practices of radical receptivity." –Lindsey french
