Prelude To The Fifth Sun (Acousmatic) AIFF

Due to its wide dynamic range, the piece is best heard through headphones.

Prelude To The Fifth Sun is a soundscape composition for electronic and found sounds, and video. It was originally inspired by the struggle of the Native American Hopi tribe of northeastern Arizona for sovereignty over water resources in their ancestral lands. Today, indigenous peoples in the U.S. and throughout the world continue to peacefully resist the encroachment of corporate and government interests on their lands, including most recently at Standing Rock.

In this piece, a familiar environmental sound-world gives rise to a tapestry of unearthly voices and textures, weaving them with chant derived from the Hopi tradition. Prelude To The Fifth Sun is intended as a celebration of the sacred relationship between traditional cultures and the earth.
