Brought to you by Eastman School Professor Oliver Schneller and E.A.R.S. — the Eastman Audio Research Studio — the Eastman Mobile Acousmonium is a multi-dimensional experiment in sound with a participatory twist. An installation full of tubes, resonators, tiny loudspeakers, and exciters that twist, swing, and turn will fill the Memorial Art Gallery's ballroom, and people can move freely through the project and explore the sounds. It's up to the listener's ear to have it make sense, keep it weird, or make it even weirder. You'll find, there's music everywhere and in everything.

The Eastman Mobile Acousmonium: loudspeaker orchestra surround-sound walk-around concert will take place in two hour-long performances on Thursday, March 30, at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue. 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Free. 276-8900; mag.rochester.edu.
