In (The) Nature (of) Sound, sounds and visuals are abstracted from nature, and combined with instrumental and other human-made sounds into a seamless environment. Viewers are invited to reflect on what nature is "about," as well as humans' interactions with nature, whether positive or negative. Musicians may also participate by playing the graphic score provided; their sounds will be integrated into the installation.

S(teve) Eric Scribner studied composition with Lockrem Johnson. He has lived in Seattle, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Japan, with premiers of many of his pieces in each of those places. Many of his recent compositions have been part of an extended series for guided improvisation over prerecorded sound (often processed from environmental recordings by his friend Jonathon Storm). (The) Nature (of) Sound is part of this series, though it is the first of Mr. Scribner's pieces to include a video element. 

Jack Straw Cultural Center gratefully acknowledges The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture King County Lodging Tax Fund, Washington State Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, ArtsFund, and individual contributors for their support of Jack Straw Artist Programs.
