Join CymaSpace for an evening of immersive visual sound art at PICA Time Based Arts Festival (TBA 2019).
Leading Deaf musician, artist, and advocate Myles de Bastion and the CymaSpace production team collaboratively curate a night of experimental music and sound that centers Deaf and Disabled artists and audiences. Through visual, vibrational, light-based, and other immersive and multi-sensory interpretations and displays of sound, this night of performances will create multiple modes and nodes of access for Deaf and Hearing audiences alike, expanding our notions and perceptions of artistic and experiential possibilities for music and sound art.
ASL interpretation, captioning, and other forms of accessibility and accommodation will be provided. Audiences are encouraged to contact the TBA Box Office in advance to request any additional access or accommodation needs.
Discounts or complimentary tickets can also be arranged via our Box Office for members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community.
