Seattle Phonographers Union Sunday, September 30 @ 8 pm

So I spend quite a bit of time lurking on the former I heart noise board and I saw a post about an interesting performance piece.

Sunday, September 30 @ 8 pm
Building 27 at Sand Point, Magnuson Park

"The Seattle Phonographers Union improvises live with unprocessed field recordings drawn from the huge archive of sounds they have collected around the world and right here in local streets, pastures, and forests.

The SPU performs in the vast environment of a former aircraft hangar at Sand Point Magnuson Park, allowing the natural reverberation of this large space to influence their improvisation.

There is no seating at this performance; listeners will be free to come and go, their echoing footsteps another component of the sonic environment. Bring a cushion and/or blanket if you wish to sit.

The SPU features an all-star cast of noted Seattle-based sounds artists including Steve Barsotti, Pete Comely, Katie Gately, Mark Griswold, Doug Haire, Dale Lloyd, Perri Lynch, Rob Millis, Toby Paddock, Steve Peters, and Jonathan Way."

It looks like it should be a cool performance. I don't know how long I will spend out in the cold on a Sunday evening, but I definitely want to check it out.
