Magrane, E., W. Burk, and E. Quin-Easter. 2016. What will stand: Songs from (F)light, a collaborative borderlands song cycle. ACME: An International Journal for Critical Geographies 15 (2): 482-510.
(F)light: a borderlands song cycle is a creative response to migration. We wrote and composed the cycle of nine songs in relation to two particular borders: those between Arizona, United States and Sonora, Mexico; and Maine, United States and New Brunswick, Canada. The songs address borders, geopolitics, mobility, emotion, and narrative. We briefly contextualize our collaboration on (F)light and then share three songs from the project, as scores and as sound files performed by Women in Harmony, a women’s chorus in Portland, Maine.
(The sound files can be accessed either by clicking on the icons on the top of the scores if viewing the pdf in Adobe, or through clicking on the supplementary files on the right side of the ACME console.)
