Join us, and nations all over the world for International Noise Awareness Day - Hear for the Future :: April 16, 2008 :: Twisted Village 12b Eliot St., Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Beginning at 2:00 pm there will be in-store hearing tests administered on an audiometer :: 2:15 – 2:16 (EDT) International Minute of Silence :: 8:00 pm Concert – Brendan Murray, Asher, Jed Speare.
The concert will feature an investigation into the earliest known recording, from 1860, predating Edison’s by 28 years. A recent article in the NY Times on Edourard-Leon Scott de Martinville’s phonautogram included the sound file of this recently played-back recording. (To read the article and listen to the sound file, go here.) Brendan Murray, Asher, and Jed Speare will exclusively source this recording as the form-building basis for their concert, signaling a clear intent to transform. While juxtaposed within the confines of Twisted Village’s aeons and multitudes of recorded sound, this pause for reflection, of 148 years, beckons new sonic awareness, here for the future.
