Ice Is What I Remember

by Earthsound

supported by


This duet for voice and bass depicts the theme of climate change and melting ice through diverse sound material and techniques. An intimate portrait of the changing climate is told through the recorded voice of upstate New York resident Joseph Dumoulin, who speaks about the disappearance of reliable winter ice in ponds upon which he played backyard hockey as a child. His words describing his memories of ice also provide the lyrics for the piece:

Ice is what I remember most about my youth
It was just a way of life I thought would never end
The ice is like a mirror
It was just crystal
I realized that way of life was gone
