Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Radio producers Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett have gathered audio from all over the world. Now they are going to set up a ring of speakers, pass out eye masks, turn out the lights, and surround you with sound. This is The World According to Sound. You will hear bridges and ants and the gurgle of mud pots. The sounds will transport you inside another person’s head and back in time a hundred years to the streets of Berlin. There will be a musical performance by a washing machine, a sonorous tennis match, and a disturbing howl Marco Polo heard centuries ago while crossing the Gobi Desert. For one hour you will be deprived of sight and made to rethink the world through your ears.

This event is hosted by Northwestern University's MA in Sound Arts and Industries.
