LISTEN - Stanford - May 4th, 2012 / by Christopher Willits

I created this deep listening event, and with the great help of Overlap and CCRMA we're bringing it to Stanford next friday, May 4th. Very excited for this series to grow and bring people together within beautiful body-vibrating sound.

LISTEN - STANFORD UNIVERSITY / CCRMA - MAY 4, 2012 - 7:30PM doors, 8-10PM - FREE

LISTEN is a unique event exploring vibration, space and listening. Overlap has commissioned unreleased sound compositions from acclaimed sound artists and musicians. The pieces are presented in a state-of-the-art listening environment that allows the listener to soak deep into the sound. These exclusive pieces are not to be found anywhere on the web, CD, or vinyl. The event will occupy two spaces in CCRMA both with multichannel playback systems, including The Listening Room. The audience will be laying down or sitting on the floor, so please bring pillows and/or blankets to be as comfortable as you can. The event is free. Limited attendance, please come early to reserve a space. Directionshere. Be prepared to go deep. + Thanks to Stanford / CCRMA and Chris Carlson for co-producing this event with us.
