Synopsis

Album Description
An aural journey from the source of the river, in the high peak area of the Adirondacks, downstream to the Lower Bay and the Atlantic Ocean; Lockwood traces the course of the Hudson through on-site recordings of its flow at 15 separate locations. Annea Lockwood has recorded rivers in many countries to explore the special state of mind and body which the sounds of moving water create when one listens intently to the complex mesh of rhythms and pitches. The listener will find that each stretch of the Hudson has its own sonic texture, formed by the terrain, varying according to the weather, the season and downstream, the human environment whose sounds are intimately woven into the river's sounds

Poetry in literal liquid motion
William Timothy Lukeman | 06/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some might question whether this qualifies as music -- after all, isn't it just recording the sounds of a river? Rest assured, it's far, far more than bland "relaxing sounds of nature" as aural wallpaper! Like any traditionally composed piece of music, there's a distinct emotional tone, a narrative arc, that's the result of careful & precise choices by the composer. Rather than lulling & tranquilizing the listener, it constantly evokes images & memories, and the rich palette of emotions associated with them. And those will be uniquely different for every listener. Yes, you could put this on as mere background ... but then you'd be missing so much. It's a work that rewards repeated & attentive listening, and is most highly recommended!"
