Listening to the River

Previous ASITW residents, Monica Haller and Sebastian Muellauer are traveling down river for the month of July, mapping the sounds of the river from headwaters to the delta.



They are using an underwater microphone (hydrophone), a robot buoy that records the sounds, documents the route, sights and observations along the way. The culmination of the trip is New Orleans where they are planning small actions of "listening to the river.” This articulates itself as an informal "listening station” where residents are invited to specific points of the waterfront to listen. There, they settle down next to the river to hear the water passing by. The buoy suspends the hydrophone in the river. Listeners sit, lie, "plug in" to the water. It's a simple action that people often find quite powerful. The sound streams live for anyone listening from afar.

You are invited to the river’s bank to participate.

Trees Talk

Don't miss our very own David Baker, Environmental Curator at A Studio in the Woods, as he tells the inspiring story of resilience and recovery of our forest with scientific research from pre and post Katrina.

A forest ecologist, Baker studies long term changes to Louisiana's bottomland hardwood forests with a particular emphasis on how hurricanes and invasive species change these ecosystems.
