Calendar Pick: Sonic Divination

Current Artist-in-ATHICA resident Sonic Divination is an immersive experience that invites its audience to create and play with sound. Led by visual and sound artists Jon Vogt, Shannon Perry and Michael Scott Pierce, the exhibit’s goal is to create deeper listening experiences that disrupt the boundaries between artist and audiences, culture and nature, composition and improvisation, music and noise, and more. There will be many interactive elements, including time lag accumulations where the sounds played are repeated as they gradually fade out, workshops for listening and responding into the sonic space, graphic scores and esoteric electronics. Open play hours where participants can drop in to interact with the sound field will take place Wednesdays–Fridays from 5–8 p.m., Saturdays from 2–9 p.m. and June 23 from 2–9 p.m. Additional AthFest workshops and performances include “On Call!,” a land soundscapes service by Carley Rickles and Erin Palovick, taking place on June 23 and “Vectrex Trinity,” visualizing sonic experiments by Claire Paul, taking place on June 29.
