Libby Meyer’s interest in natural soundscapes, conservation of special places and curiosity about the relationship between the arts and the natural world fuel her work.

In 2016, Libby and colleagues from Michigan Technological University were awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and National Park Service’s Imagine Your Parks program. The project team recorded soundscapes in the five National Parks on Lake Superior. The results: A visual and sound installation Listening to Parks, is currently on display, through January 22, 2018 in the Rozsa Gallery A-Space. Please visit the Listening to Parks website for more details. And Meyer’s composition Lakescape, created through her work on that project, will be premiered by the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, December 9, 2017, as part of the Sinfonia Antartica concert at the Rozsa Center.
