  • Genre: Radio Documentary
  • Duration: 15 min
  • The shape of Zion Canyon in Utah, USA, is always changing. The river continues to carve its path, and roads and trails are always threatened with closure due to rockfalls. This piece is about geological and human time and the relationships humans have to the land. Perspectives include the extremely long history of the Southern Paiute people in the region; the scientific technique of using sensitive equipment to measure the stress on landforms like natural bridges and converting that data to sound; the nearby community of Rockville impacted by seismic activity and rockfall, and the emotional relationship we have to nature.

    The voices in Rockfall in order of appearance.
    Daniel Bulletts - Kaibab tribe of Southern Paiutes
    Shanandoah Martineau Anderson - Shivwits Band of Southern Paiutes
    Jeffrey Moore - Associate Professor, Geology & Geophysics at The University of Utah
    Greer Chesher - Author, former park ranger and resident of Rockville just outside of Zion Park

John Roach

John Roach is a US artist and educator based in Queens New York, whose work is concerned with the often slippery role that sound plays in our perception of the world. His recent projects, that range from works for radio to intermedia installations, have explored the ability of sound to construct immersive portraits of places, and how the careful assembly of spatialized field recordings, sound design elements, and voices can connect a listener to unexpected impressions of a landscape or soundscape. He has had exhibitions and residencies in the US and Internationally, which includes the 2022 artist in residence at Zion National Park, where the content for the work Rockfall was captured.
