Live Stage: Soundwalk-a-thon [us NYC]

n80807494422_1945.jpgSoundwalk-a-thon :: June 7, 2009; 2:00 – 8:00 pm :: Various locations & start times – choose your own adventure in New York City :: Space is limited! Register by June 1, 2009.

A group of visionary artists will lead sonic excursions throughout New York as part of a rare live sonic arts experiment — the ISSUE Project Room Soundwalk-a-thon — a fundraiser and collective public inquiry into the connection between urban space and our collective sonic imaginations. Led and designed by some of New York’s most exciting sound artists and musicians, these walks will take groups of 10-20 people at a time on an intimate journey of sonic discovery to experience our community in a way they may never have done before — through sound. Walks range from meditative deep listening, to sing-a-longs, to noise-making walks incorporating instruments, iPods, boomboxes, cell phones, or silence in order to amplify the nuances of our ever-changing soundscape.
