M'Finda Kalunga September 14th, 2019

From the edge of the other side of the world, wild Africa comes alive!
Superimposed sounds of bird species, elephants, lions and monkeys of the African Congo abound within the garden's site. Designed to startle, engage and enthrall visitors and passersby, this art event is more than mere amusement however -acting as homage and commemorative to the African-American burial ground in which the garden takes it's name.

From Genesis to Apocalypsis; a soundtrack to life on planet Earth. Coming to a cathedral near you soon!

        Soundscape artist Gregory Lee Pickard premiers his latest conception: “Requiem”

From ancestral muck & slime to man-on-the- moon, Requiem encapsulates the entirety of life on Earth, 

epitomizing the human experience, in this surround-sound, cacophonic, aural extravaganza.

From Genesis to Apocalypsis: A Soundtrack to Life on Earth in Three Movements
Powered by two integrated digital audio workstations, a multitude of high-fidelity speakers are strategically positioned within the inner sanctum of a cathedral or other house of worhip. Live, on-the-scene audio mixing generates a dramatic sense of aural movement, dynamic momentum and passage of time. Methodically composed, arranged and orchestrated in three movements, this piece can be considered a classically-based, contemporary, symphonic work.
