This series presents an accessible introduction to experimental music through interactive participation. Discover how to use non-specialized sound sources (bodies, objects, simple audio technologies) and scores/instructions to enrich skills in listening, sound-making, improvisation, and coordination, while catalyzing creativity. Experimental music initiative Null Point (featuring artists Megan Kyle and Colin Tucker) joins Artpark Bridges for this special collaboration with program director Cynthia Pegado. The community is invited.
