Ways to Listen to a River, Nahuel Cano – Het Huis
In this research presentation by resident Nahuel Cano, he and 5 musicians create an experimental, musical installation with live video projections. Nahuel invites you to listen to the voices of rivers. What are the stories and histories a river carries? What can we learn from them? How do we as humanity interact with the earth and nature as a source of life? Rivers are extremely complex and dynamic systems. In infinite interactions, they shape and are shaped by the land through which they flow, and are further shaped by human visions, fears and needs. Rivers are also incredibly powerful metaphors, spiritual forces, valuable economic resources and witnesses and bearers of history. What opens up by paying attention to the transformations and traces present in sound landscapes? In his long-term research, Nahuel previously explored the Limay River. His current research is on the Argentine Salado River. In his follow-up research, he will take the Utrecht Vecht as his starting point.
