Sound Symposium and the MUN Botanical Garden present Echo Village, an immersive sound experience taking place on Sunday, September 20.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced Sound Symposium to cancel its highly anticipated 20th international symposium this summer. Producer Benton Roark hopes Echo Village will provide a creative outlet for artists and visitors alike.

“The events of this year have left so many with a desire to connect with nature, with community, and with live music, even if at a distance,” says Roark. “With Echo Village, we are creating a place where all of that can happen.”

This is a promenade-style event where visitors encounter spontaneous sound events as they stroll the grounds of the Garden. Producers Roark and Aria Umezawa have recruited fourteen musicians, dancers, and artists to provide the ambiance for Echo Village.

Visitors are encouraged to wander Echo Village at their own pace. In true Sound Symposium fashion, we encourage visitors to contribute to the soundscape as they feel inspired.

These 16 artists will be creating spontaneous musical experiences during Echo Village.
