The last time you visited the Grand Canyon, what did you take away?
Photographs? An appreciation of natural beauty?
Composer Erik DeLuca is taking away sound.
As the Park's most recent artist in residence, DeLuca's using the sounds of the Grand Canyon to create music.
What do you hear when you go to the Grand Canyon?
Recent park visitors said, “You could hear the wind rustling.”
“It’s a nice peaceful silence.”
“A gentle breeze and/or silence.”
But to Erik DeLuca, the canyon is by no means quiet.
