Join us for our second seminar of the spring semester for a glimpse at an amazing project that lies at the intersection of acoustics, art, culture, and architecture. Come hear members of New Orleans Airlift, a team of artists, musicians, and architects from New Orleans, discuss Dithyrambalina, a sonic playground, performance venue and laboratory for musical architecture in New Orleans.

 

A host of international artists, musicians and inventors are creating Dithyrambalina – a landmark village of musical, playable houses. Invented instruments embedded into the walls, ceilings, and floors of Dithyrambalina’s architecture will support boundary-breaking musical performances and inspire wonder, exploration and invention in visitors of all ages. This New Orleans Airlift project is the evolving brainchild of artists Swoon, Delaney Martin, Taylor Lee Shepherd and Jay Pennington in collaboration with over 100 more artists and musicians to date. Last year they debuted THE MUSIC BOX, as a proof-of-concept for their vision. For more about Dithyrambalina, check out their website (http://www.dithyrambalina.com/).
