    Event description

    Nature Spirit by Corrina Bonshek & Collaborators

    A Soundscape Kayaking Experience on Hinze Dam with Seaway Kayaking Tours

    Join us for a guided kayak tour as your senses are awakened. Paddle on Hinze Dam while you listen to the serene and spectacular soundscape created by Corrina Bonshek & Collaborators. Nature Spirit is a unique opportunity to experience something very special, through movement, sight and sound. On this adventure you are invited to take delight in the sound and the spaciousness it can create inside you while floating within the spectacular serene waterscape of the dam itself.

    "15-years ago I started listening to nature sounds differently. Sounds became luminous, vibrant. The more I listened, the more I felt compelled to “sing back” by writing instrumental music.” - Corrina Bonshek.

    Take delight in sound and the spaciousness it can create inside you on this guided listening experience crafted by composer Corrina Bonshek based on her own creative journey. This soundscape includes Nature Spirit, composed by Corrina for pianist Alex Raineri, “a soloist of superb virtuosic skill and musicality” (Limelight, 2015), who has performed this work all over the world including UK, Europe, USA, and beyond.
