Tennessee Mowrey left the Bay Area in October. “I will go east without using a plane until I get to the Bay Area again, collecting all the sounds I can find—city sounds, linguistic sounds, travel sounds, musical sounds, environmental sounds. When I return to the Bay Area I will make a soundscape that will bring the listener east around the world in 24 hours. Check it out! Follow my journey on my website at headedeast.art or on Instagram @headed.east.”
