From Olivia Shortt (composer): "At the time of the creation of this work (2020), there are/were numerous Indigenous reservations all over Turtle Island that are under water-boiling advisories who don’t have access to clean drinking water. This piece is my offering to the ongoing discussion and amplification of the importance of advocating for the water rights of Indigenous peoples."


This piece is a guided improvisation, performed by Orbit, with an audio score created by composer Olivia Shortt. In this version of the piece, the audience can hear both the improvised sounds and the fixed audio score.
