Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

Whispering Bayou

Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015 – Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015

Whispering Bayou is an immersive multi-media installation that will feature moving images and a soundscape comprised of the voices and images of the diverse communities living in and around Brays Bayou.

The installation is a collaboration between Houston-based filmmaker, digital artist, and community activist, Carroll Parrott Blue; French composer and video artist, Jean-Baptiste Barrieré; and scholar and improvisational-jazz trombonist, George E. Lewis.

Whispering Bayou is designed to bring awareness to the bayou, its past and its present, as well as its expansive eco-systems that range from wildlife to Houston’s vibrant cosmopolitan communities.
