A part of Wanderings and Wonderings

Beginning at Siah Armajani's Monument for Two Anarchists: Gabriella Antolini and Alberto Antolini, Storm King Art Center
Using instruments he developed and coded during his 2018 residency at Shandaken: Storm King, Sprang will perform a soundscape in response to the natural and industrial sounds present on the Storm King grounds, in real time.
