In order to better understand our present & future, we must reflect on our past. This piece serves as an acknowledgement of where we have come from & where we wish to go; what we choose to bring with us & what we choose to leave behind. Elements of this soundscape pay homage to the history of South Bend’s former power plant site that once stood just beyond the park, with field recordings of antiquated engines quietly whirring in the background to make up the environmental textures of the piece, while the musical components gently float quadrophonically through the speaker installation & around the listener to make one feel as though they are slowly being transported into a new world, one of peace & love. With any luck, the better aspects of this other dimension can seep through the portal & into our own, making it a better place with a brighter future.
