Thought Experiments in F# Minor

From the event description:

Using an iPad Mini and pair of headphones, "Thought Experiments in F# Minor" leads its audiences along a route through Walt Disney Concert Hall, revealing an imagined world hiding in plain sight. Created by acclaimed multimedia artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller and featuring Los Angeles Philharmonic musicians, Thought Experiments asks viewers to follow a film recorded in the past along the same route they are traversing in the present. Made using binaural microphones, which create a three-dimensional sound experience, and edited to create a sense of continuous motion, the fictional world of the film blends seamlessly with the reality of the architecture and body in motion.

When: Wednesday, July 31, 10 a.m.
Where: Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 S. Grand Ave.
