Wade [Music for River and People]

April 13 @ 12:00 am - April 14 @ 12:00 am

Interactive #music composer Aaron Hoke Doenges, in partnership with Rivive Nashville, will install his work Wade [Music for River and People] on the Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge April 5 – 29.

Expanding the definition of what is considered a #songwriter in music city, composer Aaron Hoke Doenges uses #Nashville area #rivers and the movement of #people to compose constantly evolving and #interactive music. Shifting notes and volumes are created in the work using the waters’ changing depths and speeds. To achieve this, Doenges downloads live data about local rivers from the United States Geological Survey website and translates the information into music. The music moves to reflect the changes in the waters’ flow as the online data is updated. #USGS Data from the Cumberland River, the Harpeth River, and Richland Creek will be used for the installation. At the same time, when people move across the bridge, these musical elements are altered to reflect the impact the people of Nashville have on local waterways. The more the audience moves on the bridge, the greater the changes in the music.

Wade [Music for River and People] will play from April 5 – 29, 2018 on the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge in downtown Nashville. The project is funded in part by the Metro Arts: Nashville Office of Art & Culture, and is free and open to the public.
