About The Event
Access Contemporary Music celebrates 10 years of its award-winning podcast Relevant Tones with a three-day festival featuring music and conversation on the topics of Rube Goldberg machines, the intersection of music and architecture, and monsters. The festival features the launch of a new video series called Songs About Buildings and Moods that features commissioned music performed live in landmark spaces like the TWA Hotel, Tammany Hall, and others.
Relevant Tones Festival Passes See all three nights for $40
Night Two: Songs About Buildings and Moods Friday, October 15
The exciting launch of a new series exploring the intersection of music and architecture, Songs About Buildings and Moods is an artistic interpretation of historically and culturally relevant spaces. The series skips the usual scientific and acoustical ways of thinking about music and architecture and instead asks, how does this building make us feel?
