There Must Be Other Names for the River
The river is the reason we can live in this part of the arid high desert. It’s why there are animals and plants, villages and cities. And it’s drying up.
Over the course of this 22 minute sound performance you will hear the voices of six singers channeling the river we know today as the Rio Grande. Each singer represents a point where streamflow data have been collected from the 1970’s through the present and into possible futures.
