At Last, My Peekskill Landing Has Come Along

Peekskill waterfront debut Huge news via Michael J. Miner on the Concerned Citizens for a Better Peekskill Facebook page: “Sneak peak at Peekskill Landing at Riverfront Green. Great boardwalk, kayak launch, pavilion and more. Video will be posted this weekend. Ribbon Cutting Friday, September 12 at 11 am.” Video below. Let’s all meet there at midnight Friday and cut more ribbons, in the form of champagne muselets (I had to look that up—they’re the little wires around the cork) and six-pack rings. Celebrate Peekskill responsibly, folks!  

See + hear this art installation: Gamelatron Sanctuary: Suara Sinar (The Sound of Light)

We got a tip from Corinna Makris, queen of the Peekskill Farmers’ Market, that this is an unmissable show—and it’s right on the waterfront mere steps from the train station. From the project‘s co-creator and artistic director, Aaron Taylor Kuffner, on the Caramoor website:

Gamelatron Sanctuary: Suara Sinar (The Sound of Light) is a site-specific installation that transforms a vast, windowless, abandoned warehouse on the Peekskill, New York waterfront into a sanctuary of light and sound. In the middle of a pitchdark 10,000 square-foot space, there is an oasis of couches, pillows and rugs. Spiraling out from the oasis in concentric circles stretching across the entire space are instruments from a Balinese Gamelan orchestra retrofitted with mechanical mallets mounted to the ceiling trusses. Twenty four bronze kettle-shaped gongs called Reyong and Trompong, four hanging gongs ranging in size from 23 to 35 inches in diameter, four pairs of nine-inch bronze hand cymbals (Kopyak), and two dragon turtles with eight four-inch hand cymbals (Ceng-Ceng) robotically play day-long sequences of music composed specifically to allow the entire warehouse to function as a resonating chamber. With each sound, a pulsation of light bursts from the instrument and fades as the tone diminishes, briefly illuminating a spot in the vastness. Movements of music become a choreographed panoramic dance of light.

Suara Sinar is a refuge, it is a universe unto itself; it is an offering, a respite, an escape and a confrontation.

Here are the hours and other info you’ll need to get there while it’s going on.
