Sound Scene was a tremendous success! Thank you to everyone who volunteered, exhibited interactive audio art, performed live, led a workshop and told a friend! One week ago, nearly 14,000 people attended Sound Scene 2019: Amplify! What a privilege it was to help raise the volume on stories less often heard and help audiences explore and delight in audio art of all varieties.
A giant thank you to our sponsors and of course the incredibly generous and wonderful support of Amy Bower and the staff and contractors of the Smithsonian Hirshhorn.
And it’s not just the numbers that shine- it’s the engagement — the smiles, laughter, pointing, playing, exploring and listening. It was a tremendously gratifying weekend. Thanks to all of DCLL for bringing so much sonic creativity into the spotlight and celebrating DC as a magnetic center for it all.
If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in helping to sponsor Sound Scene in the future (or any of our other interactive events, sonic workshops, audio fields trips or operations) please contact us here.
And now onward:
Looking forward to gathering for our (smaller, cozy) monthly living room-based listening sessions. Would you like to host a “listening lounge” in July and/or August? Please contact us here.
All you need is a living room or patio. Can’t wait!
