Site-Specific Sound Performance/Ritual
Bloodroot, a lunar collective created between gal*in_Dog AKA Guillermo Galindo and Amber Stucke, offers an incantation to change the shape of water to the desert land. Near to the Sheep Hole Mountains, the site for the performance holds the location as a secret water source deep within the earth. Blind tanks were used by the Cahuilla people throughout the Mojave Desert as they traveled back and forth through the harsh, arid landscape and were needed to survive. From a series of actions that includes sound, language and ritual, the piece honors and calls to the hidden water.
