The Public Sound Project by media artist Jessica Thompson is a series of collaborative interventions that begin in the workshop and end on the street. Presented by Glowlab for Thinking Metropolis in Copenhagen, in this series of workshops, participants work collaboratively to create simple sonic experiments and old?school, analogue interventions to take place in public space. The projects resulting from the workshops are intended to enable participants to contribute to the acoustic ecology of the city through technological intervention.
For Thinking Metropolis, Thompson will be facilitating a Bike Hack Workshop and Soundride. During the workshop, participants will construct bicycle-mounted noisemakers made of contact microphones, playing cards, and mini amplifiers. Participants will then be invited to mount these devices to their bicycles and join the artist in a mobile sound performance through the streets of Copenhagen.
An additional workshop will take place Friday, August 03, 3 pm - 5 pm and a presentation about the workshop will take place Sunday, August 05 in the afternoon. For more information, please visit:
