The Magic Sound Box!

Dec. 15 + 16th evening – The Magic Sound Box: This live radio transmission art show (or tell…) takes the audience inside Radioland – inside the magic sound box – highlighting the many talents of CKUT, exploring the limits of aural imagination and indulging in the intimacy of sound. The plan: create an enclosed area with large swaths of multi-coloured fabric, turn off the lights…and make radio. The audience is inside the box, the performers are on the outside. Two performances: 7:45pm and 9:45pm, sharp! For more information, e-mail Courtney.
