Here_There (Longer Walking Version)
Being in a low residency program creates a strong bond with the location where the in person education happens. For one or two weeks in a year, you spend a week of intensive study becoming deeply attached to a place, its streets, topography, and sounds. The campus of VCFA and the town of Montpelier becomes lodged into the fabric of self for everyone who goes through these programs.
This relationship between places becomes even more complicated during remote residencies, which we have all experienced, where our minds are oriented on a place, but none of us are there.
This soundwalk explores that attachment we feel to this particular place, even when we are at home. This collection of field recordings was recorded by students and alumnx in their own hometowns, but meant to be listened to in Montpelier, bridging and blurring the gap between here and there.
