The Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, funded by Center of Wonder, the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, Town and County Arts for All, and the Engelhard Foundation, brought the Holladay brothers to Jackson Hole to create a soundscape project similar to theirs in Central Park and the National Mall.
The site-specific music weaves original sounds from R Park into the fabric of the old gravel pit. Site: R Park, the free iOS app guides you from one end of the 40-acre park to the other with the help of the GPS capability on smartphones.
The app is an incredibly contemporary example of a public art installation inspired by nature. It really enhances how people interact with the environment around them and nature through the universal language of music.
said Lisa Samford, the executive director of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.
The brothers will lead tours on Friday, September 25th at 4, 4:30 and 5 p.m. and continue under the night sky at 9 p.m. in conjunction with Wyoming Stargazing, and on Saturday at 10, 10:30 and 11 a.m. Join us for this musical experience!
Thanks, as always, to the Jackson Hole Land Trust, our founders who provided site tours, maps, natural history, and conservation history information, enhancing Site: R Park.
