Making Waves: Sonik Boom with Janet Rogers (Audio)

Mar 13, 2021
Produced by New Adventures in Sound Art.

This edition of Making Waves is a replay of an online presentation on February 6, 2021 that included three works by poet and broadcaster Janet Rogers (Mohawk/Tuscarora) - Stereo Ribbons, tsi tkaronhya ke and Sky Woman Falling. The works are connected by indigenous origin and cosmology stories, which as Rogers says are, "important and generational hereditary tales which root us, as Indigenous people, in our identity reaching far beyond any land based migration legends and most certainly lives outside any notion of a land bridge. We know where we come from, and we know to where we will return." The show is introduced by Janet Rogers and afterwards includes a discussion with her about these works and the artistic communities that inform her radio projects.
