Seattle Phonographers Union

Engaging in collective improvisation using only unprocessed field recordings, the Seattle Phonographers Union explores the ways in which we recognize, differentiate, map and navigate our sonic environment. Both novel and familiar sounds are juxtaposed in ways unique to each event. Breaking away from their usual “politburo” performance set up, group members will be spread (and in some cases moving) throughout the space, playing through small, localized sound systems to create a sonic environment made up of many smaller micro-climates, with the audience free to move through the space or sit if they wish.
