Produced by musician Liz Knowles, the sound of circles is a podcast series of “circular” reflections, gestures, sounds, and landscapes explored through the migration dance film project. These sonic maps spiral up through music, movement and filmmaking — weaving together Liz’s reflections on the films and her conversations with choreographer Sandy Silva and director Marlene Millar. In each episode, we present these resonances of circular motion — a journey of emergence.

Musician Liz Knowles introduces sound of circles, a nine part cycle of reflections on the migration dance films.
Art can be a container for our curiosity. Liz discusses those creative vessels with the migration dance film creators, Sandy Silva and Marlene Millar.
In this sonic map, we delve into melodic and rhythmic structures that create circular motion. This a fun and easy dive into a different kind of listening while watching the migration dance film series.
What are points of access and the notion of “slow reveals?” In this segment we unearth the creative process with Sandy and Marlene.
In this episode we explore the body and how it is tethered through a tension that resides in layered spirals in composition and movement that keep choreography and landscape connected to one another.
This sonic map invites you to hear sound as arrivals, landings, and leavings and begin to perceive how circular motion is created through flow and sustain.
We invite you into the spaces where Sandy’s choreography moves. Deeply connected to sound and landscape, this sonic map explores the idea of spatial language of the bodies as topography.
We explore the connections between landscape and migration — including the simultaneous joy and sorrow intimately linked with arriving and leaving. This sonic map weaves its trajectory of landscape, migration, and environmental awareness.
In this last segment, Liz reflects on the notion that grief and growth are tied together in a cyclical conversation.
