In the Window, Underwater is a sound walk in the city of New Rochelle, NY. The piece explores urban renewal and economic change through interviews, sound design, and music. Think of it as a choose-your-own-adventure audio podcast where your physical location in the city changes what you hear.
While there are a lot of historical accounts presented in this work, it is not a documentary and is not meant to be educational. Also, just because it is meant to be experienced in downtown New Rochelle, it is not a guide to the city. In fact, many of the accounts take place in other locations. You are the guide in your own experience and your navigation will determine what you hear.
