THE MUSIC BOX, A Shantytown Sound Laboratory

The Music Box – Oct 22
The New Orleans Airlift presents The Music Box: A Shantytown Sound Library. Short teaser edit of the opening night performance, October 22, 2011.  Featuring Shantytown Orchestra, conducted by Quintron.

The Brooklyn-based artist Swoon is bringing a landmark permanent sculpture to the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. This “house” will also function as a musical instrument. A growing group of local and national sound artists are creating interactive instruments that will be built into its walls and floorboards allowing visitors to bring the house to life through their touch. This fall they will debut prototypes in a temporary installation called THE MUSIC BOX, A Shantytown Sound Laboratory.
