a wave and waves

Bent Frequency is seeking Atlanta-area creative musicians for a unique performing experience. On Saturday 15 October 2016, Bent Frequency will present Michael Pisaro's A wave and waves, featuring guest artist Greg Stuart,  during the Elevate Public Art Festival in downtown Atlanta.  A wave and waves is a unique immersive experimental sound performance that requires 100 performers making small percussive sounds. Our performance will be the US premiere of this monolithic 70-minute piece. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We're looking for volunteers to perform with us!

We're very excited about this project. A wave and waves is a beautiful piece, one that can only truly be experienced live. The performers are set up in a 10X10 grid with the audience interspersed within the ensemble. Don’t miss your chance to perform in the US premiere of this beautiful piece along with 99 of Atlanta's most creative musicians! 

We're not looking for "professional" percussionists, just serious minded and thoughtful musicians interested in sound art. You do not need to own percussion instruments to perform.  If you would like to be involved, please complete the attached Google form. The deadline to apply is October 1.  We hope you will join us.
