returned to the location where i took the photograph that is featured on the upcoming album call, response. the original photography was shot during a flood before any of the actual recording of the album began. it was kind of fitting now that the album is resolved to revisit the location and find the river level at its other extreme.

1-minute video with audio captured in minneapolis, mn on november 13, 2010 as part of the simultania project (a collaborative event where people from all over the world film and record sound during the same 1-minute-moment in time)

note: shortly after the 30-second mark, there is a cracking in the distance to the right – this was a tree that had collapsed off-camera under the weight of the falling snow. the sound of the tree hitting the ground must have been muffled by the blanket of already accumulated snow.
