In the Dark and The Smitten Mitten Audio Collective present The Poetry of Places: an evening of creative audio
Saturday September 13, 7:30-9:00 PM
Matrix Theatre, 2730 Bagley St, Detroit
Join curators from the UK’s celebrated In The Dark series for an evening of unforgettable listening — radio documentaries, soundscapes, creative audio from some of the world’s most innovative audio producers. Hang on to your seats as we travel to faraway places. Think of it as movies for your ears.
About the presenters:
‘In the Dark’ is the UK’s major spoken word audio and live listening organization. Over the past five years they have commissioned new works from producers around the world, and staged countless live listening events all over Europe. In the Dark aims to create a mini-revolution in the way people think about spoken-word radio by lifting it out of its traditional settings and celebrating it in new and exciting ways.
‘The Smitten Mitten Audio Collective’ is a group of audio artists and radio journalists based in Detroit and Ann Arbor who meet to share inspiration and workshop creative projects. They exist to nourish, assist and inspire one another, and the general public, through the creation of thought provoking, convention bending audio.
Arrive early, seating is limited.
