Soundpost — Remixing Transit: Found Sounds with Rachel Steele
@ Chicago Symphony Orchestra
220. S Michigan Ave. Chicago Il, 60604
Opening Thursday, March 30th, from 5:30PM - 7:30PM
Soundpost: Remixing Transit is an interactive, site-specific, audio-visual installation and art exhibition that highlights the power of cultural exchange and place-making through music.
Attendees are invited to explore a series of large-scale structures that highlights how public transit and synthesized sounds are based on the encoding of data and time-based performance, leaving visitors to reflect on how they connect with their immediate surroundings and the distinction between music and noise.
Remixing Transit combines architectural elements of the Chicago Transit Authority with found sounds and original compositions to examine connectivity, urban transit, environmental degradation and sociocultural boundaries in Chicago.
Soundpost programming will also include a brief talk by Rachel Steele on sampling, found sounds and the composition process of Remixing Transit, followed by a short sound performance using found sounds.
Soundpost events include light bites and discounted drinks.
5:30 p.m. — Reception Begins
6:15 p.m. — Presentation
All Soundpost attendees can access a special offer to attend Boccherini, Vivaldi & Mozart 40 for only $15. That’s only $35 for two great musical experiences.
Presented by the Overture Council — the CSO’s young professionals organization
