About the Speaker Project:
Chicago based artist Juan Angel Chavez will create a multi-directional, multi-layer sound experience at the Hyde Park Art Center from April 29 to July 8. Composed out of found material we see everyday, such as old billboard signs, wood panel siding and orange traffic cones, the large-scale speaker sculpture will turn the gallery into a laboratory for sound. Audience members are invited to hear how sculpture can change the sound and sight of music.

Sounds cool--I wish I'd seen it. I'd be interested to see singer-songwriters take part in a project like that. The speaker project seems so avant, it'd be interesting to blend an older and a newer style together.

Wow. Will we be seeing a more in-depth commentary on this one? It seems like an interesting project with possibilities. How was the experience overall for you?
