What role did rhythm play in our pieces about water?
From Smetana’s Die Moldau to Debussy’s La Mer, composers have been inspired by water. As universal subject, there is a unique opportunity to observe artistic differences. Canvas commissioned ten composers and ten photographers to work in tandem to create a piece on water. The performance is a 60-minute stream of music and art, collected from throughout the United States and the Netherlands.
