From Red Paint Hill
Phillip Andrew Lewis
"In 1768 the famous historical American surveyor, Thomas Hutchins, identified Red Paint Hill as the navigational landmark and point of beginning for the North Tennessee land now known as Clarksville. At the confluence of the Cumberland and Red Rivers, the city began its development within the geometric forms outlined in this survey. Along these plotted lines, roads and passageways were formed. As the city grew beyond these original plots, the grid quickly broke down.
Using this historic city design, current field recordings retrace the original grid lines with the sounds found along these boundaries. This sonic survey becomes a new connection to the origins of the city."
Terminal is a space sponsored by the Department of Art and the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN to showcase and examine internet and new media art.
