On Saturday, September 22, 2007, the Long Beach artists group FLOOD will present Soundwalk2007, featuring local and international artists. This event operates under the concept of a one-night aural/visual experience as provided by a walking tour of sound installations and soundmarks located in various indoor and outdoor spaces situated throughout the East Village Arts District in Downtown Long Beach. The artworks will combine in multiple ways a wide range of visual, performative and audio components.
During SoundWalk2007 artists Nicole C. Russell and Kate Henningsen will be presenting To Say the Least, a new interactive, performance-based, sound and text piece. Through out the event the artists will be broadcasting, from Broadlind Cafe, 5-10 text messages to willing participants' cell phones. Through text messaging To Say the Least explores the dichotomy of connection and disconnection within society brought about by the use of new technologies. The artists strongly encourage those who would like to participate in this new piece to sign up in advance by sending your name, cell number, and carrier to: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Participants may also sign up during the event by stopping by the artists' broadcast station at Broadlind Cafe anytime between 530-8pm).
