about

"What did you see, O Jordan, that disturbed you so deeply? I saw the Invisible One naked and I trembled. How can one not tremble and draw back before him? At his sight the angels trembled, the heavens leapt for joy, the earth shook, the sea turned back with all the visible and invisible beings. Christ appeared in the Jordan to bless all waters!" 

Dialogue With The River is a conversation between landscapes of sound and traces of movement, taking impulses from the physical space and transporting those specific experiences to a space away from the original, deterritorializing the landscape. 

The durational performance takes the space, adds layers of imagination, and proposes images and circumstances around it, to look at, listen to, imagine from.





MARTIN A. SMITH

Martin A. Smith is a composer and sound/video artist whose work is concerned with the creation of atmosphere rather than of form, melody or rhythm, of creating an environment through subtle and harmonious changes rather than through force.

His work explores the areas of sound, image and environment, creating immersive, multi-layered pieces focusing on the way sound alters, reinterprets or enhances our emotional response to the nature and spirit of place, memory and environment.
