The SCENE&heard concert series continues Friday, December 10, at (SCENE) Metrospace, with a new concert called Sound in Space. Doors at 6:30, show at 7:00. Students $3; general public $5.

We are used to music being presented from directly in front of us. By contrast, sounds in the real world surround us on all sides. Sound in Space presents music by Mark Applebaum, John Cage, Junghae Lee, and Sam Merciers that places sound sources around the performance space.

Sound in Space involves a variety of media, from orchestral instruments to folk instruments to electronics and live video.

Immediately following the concert, we will perform Phil Kline's Unsilent Night, a walking sound sculpture in which we all carry boomboxes around town playing a different CD from the composer. We invite and encourage everyone to bring CD player boomboxes to the concert and join us for Unsilent Night!

An alternative to traditional concert aesthetics, the Scene&Heard concert series presents a more engaged and integrated showcase for the diverse artistic community at MSU. Come for music commenting on art and technology and culture at large, where art music connects jazz, noise, pop, poetry, theatre, tagging, YouTube, etc.
