The Adirondack Forest is a beautiful stretch of land that immerses visitors in nature and the native Mohawk culture. For one artist, it was enough of a muse to create an entire piece of work.
Composer Pete M Wyer found inspiration for a musical art exhibit that has brought guests to tears. The wind, the leaves and the birds work in harmony with the arrangement for an unforgettable musical experience. It allows visitors to develop a closer connection to the forest.
Recorded with 72 individual voices in the Mohawk language, "I Walk Towards Myself" plays on 24 speakers, strategically placed throughout the Adirondack Forest. The musical art exhibit, iForest plays through Columbus Day at The Wild Center in the Adirondacks.
