How do music and sound technologies and the mobile phone change the way we make music and collaborate? What can this tell us about ourselves and our cities? How can we create platforms that forge intersections where few previously existed? This collaboration lab invites participants to first collect or record sound via field recorders & mobile phones and then come together for collaborative music composition, idea development, critical reflection, and presentation. Guest critics and artists may include local DJs and musicians.

If you are interested, you must fill out our Google Form  by Friday, March 21st. And join us for the info session!
