Sound Escape at The Dali Expo

This event has already passed

The Dali Expo is proud to host Monterey's second Sound Escape, a local showcase of ambient music and atmospheric soundscapes, conceived by local artists Jeddy Grant (Morticai) and Jake Padorr. After discovering a shared interest for the niche art of soundscaping, Morticai and Padorr sought to develop a scene for like-minded artists in the area.

The word soundscape, in a completely natural sense, refers to the collective voice of an ecological system. It refers to all of the sound that reaches our ears in any given moment. The term is credited to R. Murray Schafer, who embraced and studied the sound of various habitats. It was his goal to encourage us to pay closer attention to the sonic fabric of our environments.

Listeners are immersed into environments, seemingly worlds away, through these soundscapes often created live on the spot in a freeform fashion. Tapestries of sound tie together with fascinating liquid light shows and projections (from collaborator and local light legend Nelson Basden, a.k.a. Lumiere Alchemical) to create seamless atmospheres for the listeners to bathe in.

Space is limited. You can get your tickets in advance by calling 831-372-2608 or at the door.
