Host: The Blanton Museum of Art, 200 E. MLK Jr. Blvd.
Date: November 4, 2 – 4pm
The 20th occurrence of the Blanton’s acclaimed program will feature performances and original compositions focused on the theme of the human body. Inspired by corporeal sounds and processes as well as medical procedures and biological data, BioSounds will feature works that incorporate heartbeats, brainwaves, pacemakers, and a variety of biological sounds.
“This program examines how we can use sound to expand our awareness of the body,” said Steve Parker,SoundSpace Artistic Director and Austin-based musician, artist, and curator. “By translating biological processes, triggering neurological functions and memory, or communicating vast amounts of data, in this context, sound can act as a tool for empathy.”
