Here Song Walk with Cannupa Hanska Luger
November 6, 2021 @ 1:00 pm
A collaboration with the Carlos Museum, Emory University
Flux Projects has been working with Cannupa Hanska Luger and Ginger Dunnill to create Here Song, a mobile app that allows users to trace the landscape and create tonal resonances—sonic stories that engage directly with the land. The app was inspired by the tradition of Luger’s ancestors, the people of the Northern Plains Tribes of North America, to study horizon lines to create melody and other types of sonic experiences. This practice, known as “singing the horizon,” connected them to place and reinforced their relationship to the land.
Join Cannupa Hanska Luger and master naturalist and nature photographer Kathryn Kolb for a guided walk through Atlanta’s Cascade Springs Nature Preserve, one of the largest areas of old-growth forest in the city. The park lies on Cascade Road, which follows the ancient Native American Sandtown Trail that stretched from Stone Mountain to the Creek village of Sandtown on the Chattahoochee and into Alabama.
Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to create a sonic story of your experience of the land during the walk.
Meet at the Kilgo Circle entrance to the Carlos Museum at 1pm to board a private bus to the Cascade Springs Nature Preserve.
