A site- and time-specific ambient recording complements a choreographic score for participants to experience a series of connected vignettes of physical meditations–prompts for interacting with their surroundings and invitations to move their bodies and to understand themselves and their environment in a more nuanced and physical way. Each of the audio vignettes are tethered to a specific node on the railpath, inviting the audience to pause in those spaces; to see, hear, smell and engage their bodies in new ways related to the environment and their own physicality.
