Overview

In 1999, composer/sound artist Steve Peters undertook a project at The Land, a venue for site-specific environmental art in central New Mexico. Wishing to develop an intimate relationship with the site rather than impose his own noise upon it, he devoted himself to the act of listening to the sounds that were there during each hour of the day and night over the course of one year. Spanning the disciplines of acoustic ecology, environmental and performance art, poetry, sculpture, installation, and contemplative practice, Hereings documents that experience of immersion in a particular landscape, examining the gradual process of becoming connected with Place.

In sharing his findings, Peters encourages us to offer our own attention to the subtle poetry that surrounds us. His work reminds us that, beneath the surface of the commonplace, the extraordinary lies waiting to be revealed.
