A motorcyclist hits the only tree standing in an otherwise empty field.

Knoxville: Summer of 1995

Here's an audio homage on three levels: first, to James Agee's poetic memoir of the sounds and smells of Knoxville, Tennessee in the summer of 1915, shortly before his father died; secondly, to Samuel Barber's 1947 orchestral setting of Agee's text for the soprano Eleanor Steber; and finally to the modern city of Knoxville.

"Cicatrix" resonates in regenerative acts, resiliency, rootedness, and irreparably damaged nerves as it tries to imagine one woman's language of war.

Mucho Corazon tells the story of Leon Perlee, who builds and restores antique street organs in Holland's oldest surviving street organ business, and Milades Sosa, who works at a Cuban organ factory.

Survivors

Tens of thousands of inmates in American prisons live in total isolation. They don't see anyone. They don't talk to anyone. They are completely alone, sometimes for years, in a cell the size of a small bathroom.

Big House / Disclosure

Big House/Disclosure is a multimedia project exploring the legacy of slavery, the genesis of house music, and Chicago's role as the first U.S. city to adopt a Slavery-Era Disclosure Ordinance (which requires companies doing business with the city to reveal if they profited from slavery in the past).

Whether it's societal progress or a squiggly 11-pound miracle, getting there isn't always pretty.
