Part of the drinking water for Hartford, Connecticut is supplied from five
small reservoirs built into the wooded hills surrounding Talcott Mountain
west of the city. This area is also a popular spot for hiking, biking and
picnics. Since the sounds for Reservoir were recorded on a bluff overlooking
reservoir 3, there are traces of airplanes, mosquitoes, birds and cicadas in
the samples. Reservoir is interactive; playback and volume can be
controlled by manipulating the sample array.
