Sound Scene 2019: AMPLIFY! invites you to consider how sound, story and the natural world are amplified or quieted. What do you hear? Which cultural narratives are audible and which deserve additional amplification?
- Make music from your fingerprints
- Listen in on the sounds of your own inner ear
-Join a small group workshop to transform playground hand clap games into hip hop beats
- Travel through time and space with a VR sonic meditation
And SO MUCH MORE!
(Did we mention the Xylosaurus?)
