Megapolis Audio Festival

Greetings! If you are Philadelphia this weekend (or, ya know, in the region) I suggest you come check out the Megapolis Audio Festival, part of Fringe Fest. This “delightfully weird” festival features audio walks, installations, workshops, and performances.

I am collaborating with Toby Kaufmann-Buhler on an audio walk titled “Stalking Wild Sounds.” It’s a nod to Euell Gibbons, who was an advocate for wild food foraging and wrote his famous book Stalking the Wild Asparagus in the 1960s near Philadelphia.

Our piece imagines a future where nature has reclaimed the built environment and foraging for food reigns. Participants will use a provided audio player and field guide on a self-guided 30 minute walk. The walk will start at Philadelphia Community Access Media (Philly CAM), go through the formal landscaping of Washington Square Park, and return to Philly CAM. Taking the form of a real-time science fiction, with the sounds of “alien” flora and fauna, the audience will find themselves moving through the city accompanied by the sound work that maps onto their surroundings.

Our event is free and open to the public, during select times, September 16th and 17th. Check out the Megapolis schedule for more info.

We, partners of the earcatcher collaboration, have decided to dissolve the project. We’ve had a great 3 1/2 year run and will be putting our energies into other projects.
While May is our last official earcatcher, friend-of-earcatcher Toby Kauffman-Buler and Lexie have made this last homage below.
Stay tuned here for news of future projects and events.
Thanks for tuning in!
Liz, Linda, and Lexie

If you have an interest in patterns and textile design, check out this book by Kristi O’Meara and Audrey Victoria Keiffer: The Pattern Base.  It was published last year and I was priveleged enough to be included.

Finally, this Saturday March 12th from 7-10pm is the opening for How Do We Get Home, an exhibit of work at Wild Goose Creative curated by the Illume Collective. I’ve been assisting Tim Lai and Eliza Ho on a speculative live-work space architectural model.
