Re:Sound is an experimental music series which explores the relationship between forgotten spaces, sound abstraction and the natural environment. The series takes place on the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve, a 215-acre park that formerly served as one of the first Naval Ammunition Depots.
The event is held in a concrete munitions storage magazine measuring 55'x100' with ceilings over 15'. The architecture of the building traps sound resulting in a prolonged reverberation.
The series launched its first show on February 14th 2015 as part of the San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival, celebrating the annual bird migration to the Bay.
Special thanks to Myrna Hayes, volunteer preserve manager, without whom none of this would be possible. Thank you for giving us a place to listen and create.
