SACRED VOICE OF THE BAYOU

ABOUT

Sacred Voice of the Bayou is a multi-disciplinary project premiering at Houston’s Mason Park on Sunday April 29th

Project Details
Sacred Voice of the Bayou is an experiential arts project highlighting Houston’s Mason Park community. The project recognizes concepts outlined by the Bayou Trails convening process. This project engages the eco-zones, Hispanic Heritage, and emphasizes ongoing community involvement. Five Houston-area emerging artists from across disciplines have come together and developed a powerful project that intertwines research, writing, music, visual and performance practices for an immersive experience that park-goers of all ages will be able to enjoy. Over the course of several months, park goers have been invited to participate in one-on-one audio interviews. The questions have probed participants to engage in ideas surrounding ecology, heritage and community. The intention is to facilitate a broad conversation on these subjects while simultaneously discovering the lore of Mason Park. This lore has been compiled into a sound collage by audio artist Chris Stevens, and installed in an interactive sculpture built by Matt Fries and Julian Luna.
