Oct 4, 2015 • 11am-6pm
The day begins with the exquisite puppet show for families, Birdheart (ages 6 years and up), by Julian Crouch and Saskia Lane. This is followed by experimental Australian violinist Jon Rose “Sonic Ball”–where he engages the public with a ten-foot-tall, interactive electronic musical instrument. Via sensors and radio transmission, the movements and speed of the ball determine the sonic results. The National Sawdust Inaugural Parade will feature Julian Crouch’s large scale processional puppets with the Asphalt Orchestra for a neighborhood walk and celebration. National Sawdust group-in-residence Found Sound Nation, a collective of musicians and artists who leverage the unique power of creative sound-making to help build strong, just, healthy communities, will hold mobile studios throughout the parade for the public.
