Program Notes:

...not without breaking it... investigates our (GRIT Collaborative) perceptions and relationship to global climate change, in particular, the retreat of Earth's glaciers.  A combination of ice shattering, snow crunching, and glass breaking create the soundscape.  A landscape is built from an amalgamation of broken parts, preserved in uncertainty.  This collaborative installation aims to shed light on the interdisciplinary dialogue needed to overcome obstacles (grit).
