Sonic Bridge 2

a telematic performance event
Tuesday, March 24, 2009 (8 p.m. CST / 7 p.m. MST / midnight Buenos Aires)

Hundreds of miles of wall and fence stretch along the U.S.-Mexico border, and the U.S. Immigration Policy is going in a different direction now, as the Obama administration moves forward. Performers at Elastic Sound & Vision Gallery will be part of a telematic performance event which will perpendicularly run through the U.S.-Mexico border wall/fence, in conjunction with sound artists and musicians who live in Tucson, Mexico City, Vera Cruz, and Buenos Aires. Artists in these remote locations will interact with each other in real time. Although people have many different opinions about what should be done about the U.S.-Mexico border/fence and the U.S.’ Immigration Policy, it is a good that ideas and sound can travel freely across borders.
