Anne and Chuck were the first artists to work with LocoMotoArt and created a 30 minute technologically mediated performance in a coastal forest. Performed at night, the natural soundscape of ocean waves pounding the lava rock coast, and the chirping of Coqui frogs were incorporated into a live dolcimer performance, which was further accompanied by original soundtracks by Koesters.
