Traffic Chorus

Wednesday May 20th at 7PM – 8PM

at the Traffic Island at the intersection of I-75 + M8

maptextApproach from the Northwest and use the train bridge to cross the highway. Watch for trains.

Join us for an exercise in machine mimicry as we vocalize in the tones and textures of the passing traffic. The chorus will begin at 7:25 and will last for 10 minutes. This is a relaxed exercise we will do together (no singing skills necessary, only a pair of ears and a mouth). The chorus will be preceded by a ten minute silent listening period. Michael Collino will be recording the sounds of the traffic and the sounds of our creation onto magnetic tape.

7:00-7:15 Gather

Lemonade will be provided.
Approach from the Northwest and use the train bridge to cross the highway (refer to map for help).
