Stories of Arrivals in the City of Kingston, NY, gathered by Sound Artist & Vocalist Viv Corringham. Presented by Deep Listening Institute.
This LISTENING WALK is meant to be heard on the Rondout in Kingston, NY. If you are far from Kingston, you can also listen from where you are.
The app uses your device’s GPS to activate different pieces as you wander along the waterfront. It contains ten tracks, each tied to a location. These contain stories gathered by interviewing local residents about their experiences of arriving in Kingston, interwoven with sung vocalizations.
As someone who has moved from one country to another, I’ve often asked myself: where is home? I’ve wondered how people find their own place in the world and so I decided to go and ask other newcomers. I went to Kingston, NY, for two months, hosted by the Deep Listening Institute, and spoke to a wide range of people — adults and children — all of whom had arrived there from elsewhere.
Most of my work explores people’s “sense of place”, especially very familiar places. Arrivals touches on the human desire to move or to disappear. Its elements are space and place, memory and presence.
Minor bug fixes and pacing adjustments.
