Sorry about the lack of notice here readers, it just plunked down in the DPA inbox… but if you are free tonight, this “sounds” like a really cool thing…
The National Public Radio World According to Sound live tour comes to Skidmore!
Performance and discussion is free and open to the public
For their National Public Radio show, The World According to Sound, which airs as part of “All Things Considered,” producers Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett have gathered sounds from all over the world, from walking ants to windy bridges, and now they’re sharing them at Skidmore. The duo will set up a ring of speakers, hand out blindfolds, and offer up an eclectic, immersive listening experience for attendees.
The Washington Post describes The World According to Sound radio program: “…each episode is 90 seconds, containing a neat little story about an evocative, unusual sound rendered in intense aural detail.” The show has been featured and praised for its non-narrative, sound-rich approach to radio.
Wednesday, March 29, 7 pm
The event is first-come-first-serve, and seats are limited.
The event is co-sponsored by Skidmore’s academic program in arts administration and the Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative.
