Soundwave ((7)) Architecture explores sonic connections to our built environment which shape our lives as humans. This season commissions 30 new performances and works from over 50 dynamic artists to examine the rapidly transforming landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area and the world-at-large while considering the physical and phenomenological aspects of constructing, designing and inhabiting our built environments through sound. Daring artists will present projects that explore spatial acoustics, biological architecture, personal and communal site histories, urban somatic/acoustic fields, psychosomatic effects from architectural designs, ambisonics, architectural drawings as musical scores, and neural architectures. These works hope to inspire audiences to to listen beyond the surface, connect with each other and find innovative ways to see, hear, and interact with the environment around us.

Soundwave is San Francisco’s acclaimed biennial of innovative sound, art and music, now in it’s 7th Season. Every two years, MEDIATE Art Group launches a citywide summer-long, multi-venue experiential event series in San Francisco. Each season investigates a new idea through sound and invites diverse multidisciplinary artists and musicians to explore the season’s theme in new and innovative directions.

Come experience a one-of-a-kind event and get up close and personal with participating performing and exhibiting artists discussing their works-in-progress for the Soundwave ((7)) Biennial. Featuring a panel moderated by Elia Vargas between Jason Kelly Johnson, founder of Future Cities Lab, sound artist Anna Friz, and designer Nathan John from Envelope A+D on the topic of Sound and Architecture, followed by exclusive Soundwave performances by Matthew Ganucheau and BUZZ Award recipient Andrew Blanton. There will be refreshments and hors d’oeuvres available. Donations start at 20 dollars.
