Scheduled between six and ten o'clock in the evening, SoundWalk 2013 will offer visitors an opportunity, through one of the newest postmodern art forms, to explore a city space as a virtual canvas on which artists transform the way in which we, through sight, sound and our other senses, negotiate with and navigate experience. This makes for a unique opportunity, while on a neighborhood stroll, to encounter life melded with art.
SoundWalk is a singular Southern California event that promises an atmosphere charged with the excitement of auditors and spectators as they mill about in search of sites and locations at which they can interact with both the art and the artists, all the while exchanging impressions.
100 years ago, Luigi Russolo's Futurist manifesto "The Art of Noises" was released. As a result, various works featured in this year's event will respond to or incorporate ideas from this seminal declaration that strove to open the sensorium to new ways of perceiving. It has been SoundWalk's mission to promote such aspirations, and we also hope it was our success to have done so. However, in order to continue to find new ways of perceiving, we must transcend the aural and move into alternate modes. This is why it will be SoundWalk's last year. 2015 will be the launch year of a more expansive and more daring event that will explore and respond to the synaesthetic experience in which cognitive boundaries dissolve and the senses converge.
This event is in partnership with Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA), Long Beach Arts Month, and Arts Council for Long Beach (ACLB), Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) and Art Exchange.
