Soundwave presents AudioBus- an immersive, uniquely San Franciscan performance experience. As a mobile venue, AudioBus will take audiences on a journey in the city where audiences can hear a live score on an open-top double-decker bus with installed headphones sonically customized for this experience. For this season’s tour, Soundwave is partnering with the Tenderloin Museum which holds a wealth of history in visual, textual, and auditory recordings about the neighborhood. As a symbiotic entryway to collaborative performance Sonic Portraits of a Shifting City, Kevin Corcoran and Jen Boyd explore an energetic understanding of architecture through sound. By listening to urban environments in flux – sounds of public places (atmospheres), sounds unheard by the ear alone (electromagnetic architectures), and thoughts from individuals who have shaped neighborhoods by their actions (stories) – a sonic map emerges.
