In the early part of 2012, photographer Patricia Katchur approached sound sculptor Glenn Weyant about creating an original sound work which would complement the opening of her Tucson photography exhibit titled: Desierto.
Over the coming months Katchur sent Weyant images she'd captured in Southern Arizona.
Four of Katchur's images eventually served as the inspiration for Weyant's composition - Phantasmagorical Sonoran : Suite I-IV.
Phantasmagorical Sonoran : Suite I-IV was constructed from over 30 hours of field recordings made in the Sonoran Desert's urban, suburban and rural landscapes with traditional instrument and instrument of original design accompaniment.
The four part sound work will premier on August 16 at The Tucson Botanical Gardens.
