100 Tape Loops in Rock Creek Park

News of this DC event comes from Black Plastic Bag:

This Sunday (4/5) in Rock Creek Park, D.C., there is a very interesting event going on.

Organized by D.C. musician Layne Garrett (who will also be appearing at the Avant Fairfax Festival, 4/25), there will be a gathering of (hopefully) 100 people with boomboxes set up in various locations in/at a particular section of Rock Creek Park.

Each person will have a 30 sec tape loop playing something that they recorded. At 4 PM, all the tape players will be activated and will hopefully result in an interesting sound collage.

In some ways, this in similar in spirit to certain aspects of Karheinz Srockhausen’s work.
