I, Water is an immersive composition inviting the listener to experience the strength of water in all its multifarious expressions. Listeners are invited to follow the gradual development of water from rivulet to maelstrom, until the soundscape ultimately evaporates in crystalline sonic structures. As soon as the sounds swell, a mass of water is acoustically unleashed. Riding through these wave fields, the listener explores dynamic sonic textures and is confronted with the unsteady nature of water. The source material of I, Water derives from audio recordings of water in different aggregation states, the composition puts emphasis on the sonorous capabilities of water. The external cause of the composition is an ongoing discussion on the possibly forthcoming privatization of water in the European Union and the concomitant control and standardization of this essential element.
