Resonating MIT: Amplifying Sonic Atmospheres May 13-17

May 13, 2014

The MIT Program in Art, Culture, and Technology (ACT) and the MIT Center for Art, Science, and Technology (CAST) present Resonating MIT, the culmination of a semester-long interdisciplinary collaboration that deploys sonic interventions to amplify unexplored spatial atmospheres on MIT’s historic campus.  This event is featuring visiting artists Stephen Vitiello, Scanner, and the Either/Or ensemble, as well as sonic installations on campus by students from MIT courses 4.373 and 21M.351.  Tuesday, May 13th will feature 4.373 student installations and live performances from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.  Thursday, May 15th will feature the student installations final review from 9:30am to 12:30pm.  On Friday, May 16th, Stephen Vitiello and Scanner will give a performance at 7:00pm in MIT Room E15-001.  Saturday, May 17th will feature new works at 8:00pm in MIT Room 14W-111 by MIT undergraduate composers from 21M.351.  Resonating MIT proposes that listening and resonating are unique methods for understanding space and place, using art as a catalyzer to amplify transdisciplinary exchange.  This event is free and open to the public.  For more information, visit the ACT website.
