Listen: soundscape by Nailah Hunter inspired by Union Station offers music for restoration and respite


As we rush around on busy days, it is important to take a moment to relax into our surroundings and observe them when we can — and music can help!   A new soundscape by Inglewood based multi-instrumentalist and composer Nailah Hunter guides transit riders and listeners into an experience of relaxation, restoration and reflection.

Inspired by the morning light in Union Station’s historic Ticketing Hall, Hunter seeks to evoke through music the luminous anticipation one feels before embarking on a long journey.  Hunter worked with harp, synth, and found sounds to create the 21-minute composition that transports the listener into a timeless space for restoration: in ourselves and for each other.

Curious? Take a breather and listen to the soundscape below and scroll down for evocative photos of Nailah Hunter at Union Station. Waiting in the Light is presented by Metro Art in collaboration with L.A.-based record label Leaving Records.

Downloadable on Soundcloud through April 26 or via QR code on posters inside Union Station.
