First Nations Ley

With David Samas, collaborators of First Nations Ley, at Meridian Art Gallery San Francisco, 2012.

Photos of the premiere performance, as well as improvisations at Meridian Art Gallery, San Francisco, 2012.

The yarn on the map below shows where the magnetic ley line, First Nations' Ley, occurs in North America. Ley lines, or geomagnetic lines, occur all throughout the world and are known by mystics, tribal people, and the ancient civilisations as power lines, powerful enough to transfer communications. We chose several locations along the ley line, typically known for their natural beauty and grandeur, to create a song about it.
