Artist Alex! Jimenez spent a year creating the Chubasco Channel, an artwork commissioned by Tucson Water to raise awareness of the vulnerability of Tucson’s water supply. Using field recordings of the 2021 monsoon season, the project was realized as an immersive sound installation along the Santa Cruz River on Dia San Juan, an annual celebration of the monsoons.
