Will Owen takes Habithèque to Russia

Our friend and collaborator, Will Owen, has brought Habithèque to a new frontier: Russia!

Will spent the last month or so in Saint Petersburg and Petrozavodsk completing residencies built on work commissioned by Habithèque for River Alive!, The Independence Seaport Museum’s newest permanent exhibit. Will’s Saint Petersburg project–titled “Will Owen: Delaware Water Gap Movements”–will be archived at the Sound Museum, an institution dedicated to interactive audio art. They will be using the audio for “NIGHT OF MULTI-CHANNEL SOUND”, an event showcasing various electronic compositions and sound installations from artists both local and international.

In Petrozavodsk, Will presented an audio project that was a continuation of research started for Habithèque some 4 years ago. The sonic experiment utilized melting ice to create unique sonic compositions.

A heartfelt congratulations to Will for completing such an exciting milestone in his artistic journey! And thanks for taking us along :-). Stay tuned for our upcoming collaboration, which will utilize the same sounds featured in his Russia projects, taking place at Cherry Street Pier this summer.
