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.
