Join Mexican composer, sound artist, visual artist, and performer Guillermo Galindo for this special three-part workshop exploring resonance and reverberation, listening, chanting, and the healing properties of sound. The workshop will culminate in a groundbreaking performance that leads us through sonic spaces—exploring our city and our own bodies as components of song.

Organized in conjunction with Sonic Presence (or Absence): Sound in Contemporary Art. Generous support for this project provided by Art Bridges.
