A new evening-length work by Seattle composer Steve Peters. Inspired by research into his family history in the Azores, this evocative sonic poem explores themes of migration, diaspora, memory, identity and emotional/cultural ties to place.

Canções Profundas (Deep Songs) is an immersive soundscape of field recordings made in the Azores and California: bubbling geothermal pits, gurgling ocean waves, exotic birds, buzzing whales, religious ceremonies, community celebrations, and other sounds of daily life. Within this constantly evolving collage of environmental and human sounds, a small ensemble of musicians improvise live on abstracted traditional Azorean musical themes.

Presented by Nonsequitur. Made possible in part by a GAP grant from Artist Trust (2011) and an Artist Project grant from 4Culture (2014).
