At the beach next to The Waterfront Cafe, in Berger Park
This series of live performances responds to and highlights Chicago’s proximity to water. The compositions and scores – involving multiple performers and solo performances – reflect, react to, or personify the sounds of water.
MSAE Member, Eric Leonardson is the “Acoustic Ecology MC”
Organized by 6018NORTH
This musical series responds to and highlights Chicago’s location next to water. From compositions and scores involving multiple performers to solo performances, this series highlights music that reflects, reacts to, or personifies the sounds of water. Essential to existence yet abundant, water is both profoundly symbolic and an elemental material. The performances – sited near water – draw metaphorically and/or actually from the sounds of water.
The 2011 Sound Art Theories Symposium happens November 5 and 6, in the Columbus Drive Auditorium at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
