Local Time: Cascading

November, 2015

The C A S C A D E  started as an experiment in creative activism & storytelling - created across many different media streams by many different people - improvising experimental communication networks to invoke some alternative healthy futures for earth. 

The project started with a simple ritual of singing to the water in England in mid-Winter at a cascade in Hastings (recorded by hydrophone): a ritual to open up creative space for sustainable vital futures to live.
