10 yrs. Later is a sound art piece that explores the intersections of history and the presence and absence of community soundscapes lost. The featured neighborhood was struck by the 2008 housing crisis and several parts of its four-square miles are abandoned. Edinger walks throughout the neighborhood describing abandoned homes while engaging all the senses in her description. An uneasiness slowly fills the soundscape as the recording continues, a result of all too perfect sounds surrounding a completely human voice. 10 yrs Later causes us to meditate on the living history of abandoned places.
