Kansas Wesleyan University will host a special sound art performance this week.
According to the school, echoescape: learning a dead birdsong in ‘the place where you go to listen,’ by Dr. Julianne Warren is scheduled for Thursday in Fitzpatrick Auditorium. The special surround-sound event gets underway at noon and admission is free.
Dr. Warren’s performance will include storytelling, poetry and sound art reflecting the ecosphere, with a focus on extinct animals, and is the latest in KWU’s long-running Intersections series, which focuses on the crossover between real-world issues and academia.
