This is a soundscape with accompanying video. The audio comprises field recordings in and around the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, New York, one of the most polluted waterways in the US.
The title comes from a conversation I had with Eymund Diegel, who took me out on the canal by canoe. Eymund is an Urban Planner with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Gowanus Canal. He talked about the natural streams that have been flowing into the canal for centuries and that will still be around long after we're gone.
Best enjoyed with headphones.
Video: Canon 5D Mark II and a Flip
Audio: Contact and shotgun mics with a Zoom H4n recorder
