THE VIDEO & SOUND DEPARTMENT AT PNCA PRESENTS

SIX

A LIVE SIX SPEAKER SURROUND SOUND SHOWCASE.

with..

CAT ROSS
MARBLETOP ORCHESTRA
STRATEGY
FELISHA LEDESMA
REBECCA GATES + MARCUS FISCHER
CHOIR

Please join us for the eleventh edition of SIX, an experimental, surround sound performance series.

In lieu of traditional listening orientation, the music and sound is reproduced in an open, multi-directional format. This allows the performer, sound, environment, and audience to form an exploratory relationship. Walk around, lay down ( bring a pillow or blanket if you like ), experience the sound from different angles, and immerse yourself in the art of Listening.

We do request that conversations be kept to a minimum, and that you respect the artists involved by taking anything louder outside of the main listening area. Please set your mobile devices to silent alerts.

There is no admission fee for the show, however we encourage supporting the artists involved by purchasing merchandise, or contributing via donation.

This edition will be held in the Mediatheque, on the main floor of PNCA's campus @ 511 NW Broadway.

Many thanks to PNCA - Pacific Northwest College of Art for continuing to host our showcase!
