May 10, 2010 at 2:41 pm 2 comments


The Megapolis Audio Festival (“Audio Art!!! Hurray!!!”) takes place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, in locations all over Baltimore’s Station North neighborhood. Among the many sound-related workshops, performances, documentaries, and experiences taking place at Megapolis is North Avenue: NOISE + vibrating.AIR, an installation created by sound artists Steve Bradley and Jason Sloan. It reconfigures the ambient noise happening along North Avenue in Baltimore, and Tom Hall stops by The Windup Space to hear a preview.

    Hello to Jason & Steve,

    I listened to the radio interview and it was very
    informative and impressive to learn about this
    new media for sounds.

    It is like the saying ” There is Music in the air and
    everywhere!” Hence, it is sound! Therefore, one can
    state “There is sound in the air and everywhere!” Man
    just has to capture it, manipulate it and create a new
    type of music or sound mixture with those medias of
    noise/sounds.

    Moreover, a person has to be present to hear/listen to it
    for the combination to become sound or music. Question:
    If a tree falls in the woods is there sound if nobody is
    present to hear it? An age old question!!

    Love,

    Jason’s Dad
