Site : Sound, A Sonic Portrait

May this audio be your guide; a sonic portrait of our Spring 2017 concert series, Site : Sound.


Site : Sound

Taking place across three boroughs of New York City from April 23 to June 25, 2017, twelve contemporary sound artists, composers, and instrumentalists invited the public to channel their curiosity and join in an exploration of the auditory sense.
