The audio file below was debuted at the Big Sur Stories Launch party, held October 25, 2015 at the Big Sur Grange.
It is a sound collage consisting of narratives detailing when residents first fell in love with Big Sur and decided to relocate to the area. Topics range from growing up in Big Sur in the early 50s to a teenager’s fateful first trip to the area while hitchhiking with a biker in the early 70s.
Voices heard on “Big Sur Part 1” in order of appearance: Peter Rosen, Kate Healey, Bette Sommerville, Alan Perlmutter, Ken Wright, Richard Mole, and Mary Lu Toren. Enjoy!
