<nettime-ann> SoundWalk2007



On September 22, 2007, the Long Beach artist group, FLOOD, will present SoundWalk2007, featuring artists from the Southland and the international scene. This event operates under the concept of a one- night aural/visual experience as provided by a walking-tour of sound installations and soundmarks located in various indoor and outdoor spaces situated throughout the East Village Arts District in Downtown Long Beach. The artworks will combine in multiple ways a wide range of visual, performative and audio components. There will be sculptures, environments, installations and performances.

About SoundWalk2007

SoundWalk is an annual art event produced by the Long Beach artist group, FLOOD, as a variation of the "ArtWalk" events that take place every 2nd Saturday in the Arts District of Long Beach. Artists and viewers alike passionately embraced the inaugural event, SoundWalk 2004, with thirty artists participating and nearly a thousand visitors joining together for the evening walking-tour. Many visitors, who had no prior encounter with sound-art, were overwhelmingly enthusiastic in their responses.

Now in our fourth year, we continue to explore this unique environmental experience with new and returning artists participating in the transformation of our downtown Long Beach space. Outdoor soundmarks add a layer to and perform in concert with sounds of the city, thus intermingling with and altering the local soundscape. Unlikely combinations of the ordinary and the extraordinary enter into chance encounters with the attending public. Galleries and stores within the Arts District will accommodate a variety of indoor installations, creating uncommon intersections of art and commerce. This evening dedicated to sound is not only an exciting moment of transformed perception but a chance to rethink our sensory engagement with the spaces within which we function.

A number of works will be on display for an extended period throughout the month of September at various indoor locations. Once again, we wish to surprise, puzzle, enchant as well as engage those who intentionally and unintentionally participate in SoundWalk 2007.

This event is free to the public and is being sponsored in part by the Downtown Long Beach Business Associates (DLBA), The Arts Council for Long Beach, The East Village Association (EVA) and The City of Long Beach. More information about FLOOD and the artists is available upon request.
