339 - Sound Poem

River Penobscot artists Jennie Hahn and Cory Tamler have begun a monthly check-in process that includes a creative prompt. The prompt is intended to connect us with the project's central research topics through place-based experiences and interdisciplinary artistic practice. Last month, this was the prompt:

1. read GEWH HUZ* by Ssipsis

*Muskrat. Passamaquoddy language.

2. choose at least 2:

spend an hour listening to a language you do not understand

converse with a wild animal

forage

leave an offering

3.write a song

Cory's response is a sound poem that utilizes sounds she collected during a week-long solo kayaking trip in Palau in the fall of 2015. Enjoy!
