AudioBus B61 considers the route of the 61 bus as a computer-based sound and landscape image loop with fluidly shifting audience and live performance elements. It is designed to simultaneously collect and broadcast information associated with the experience of public transportation.
It will begin prior to Conflux, online with a site displaying landscape photos and ambient sound. The site will serve to invite others to participate with segments as readers, lecturers, performers, interviewers and audience, and connect the live bus experience to gallery Information regarding groups and spaces that use sound in creative and political communication.
AudioBus B61 is conceived of and coordinated by artist Andrea Callard in collaboration with Fred Krughoff with contributions by NYSAE members and others. Starting 4PM, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH with a presentation of the NYSoundmap by NYSAE and workshop on Googlemaps Hacks with Sound-seeker creators
Live bus riding will follow the presentations at the Lucky Cat on Saturday, September 16th. The bus route runs two blocks from the gallery on Bedford St. Participants (witting or unwitting) just need a metro card.
