Build a small sound vehicle with a cassette player and a speaker! (Strollers and wagons are fine, bikes may be walked).

Pick one of four parts. The piece runs a bit over 40 minutes.

Make your own cassette or make a few to share!

10 copies of each of the four parts will be available to borrow thanks to Parlour Tapes and Big Dipper Projects.

Or download the app.
Or download a sound file.
Or charge your mobile device and stream a part off of Soundcloud.
Please be sure to read the history of Phil Kline's piece and info about making it found on this site!

We'll play our parts as we process on accessible park paths, bridges and possibly through some of the Lurie Garden wood chip paths.Please feel free to wear sparkly bits and pieces or carry lanterns or flashlights. We will shimmer and shiver and celebrate sound in the city together!

We are working on coffee, cocoa and cookies for the group!

Filmmakers and photographers are very welcome to join us to document.
