49 Waltzes - Participatory Place Making
Limited Capacity seats available

Participatory events with attendees being led in making versions of John Cages 49 Waltzes which will be added live to the sound installation on display in the ASU Museum foyer.

In 1977 the American composer John Cage created 49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs of New York. The work’s score is a map of New York City and features 49 superimposed triangles. Each triangle symbolizes a waltz. Cage obtained each point of the triangles via chance operations to pin down a specific location. Performers of 49 Waltzes visit each identified location to capture its sounds and sights to experience, treasure and document the acoustic ecology of a place.

Cage encouraged transcriptions of this work for other places. Thus students of ASU’s School of Music and Arts, Media and Engineering teamed up to transcribe this work for their Tempe campus. The ASU Art Museum is presenting the Arizona premiere of their realization of 49 Waltzes as an audio-visual installation.

This is an exciting opportunity for the public to work with students to make their own Tempe campus waltz which will be added to the exhibition.

River Listening
River Listening is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Leah Barclay and the Australian Rivers Institute to explore the creative possibilities of aquatic bioacoustics and the potential for new approaches in the conservation of global river systems. The project involves listening labs, field recording, sound maps, performances and installations to experiment with virtual technologies and community engagement in understanding river health and aquatic biodiversity. 

This exclusive installation for the 2014 Listen(n) Symposium draws on hydrophone (underwater) recordings from the Mary River, Noosa River and Brisbane River in Queensland, Australia collected throughout 2014. The additional sonic material draws on fragments from Barclay’s previous rivers projects across Australia, Brazil, India, Korea, China and Europe. This includes the Amazon River Dolphin in central Brazil, water insects at dusk on the banks of the Pamba in southern India, snapping shrimp in Australia’s Noosa River and explorations on London’s iconic Thames. This installation explores rivers as the lifeblood of communities and draws on ten years of collaborations with river systems across the world. www.riverlistening.com
