Intertidal Room: A Soundwalk through Timescapes of Vancouver's Coastline
Intertidal Room is a soundwalk composition developed for Vancouver coastline near Stanley Park, unceded territory of Coast Salish peoples - Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lõ and Səlīlwəta?/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəýəm (Musqueam) Nations. The composition invites the listener to embark on a soundwalk during a period of slack water. It is a moment when the tide is at the lowest point and soon about to return. By attending to the fugitive nature of intertidal zones, this soundwalk intends to provide a temporary room for increased aural attention to the ways people have been cultivating, affecting but also disrupting various, also imperceptible layers of these complex environments.
