We have pushed past our Kickstater goal!!! Thank you all so very much. We are more excited about our project then ever.
This week our visionary shantytown artists for this fall’s Music Box Sound Laboratory are all getting to know each other. Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels (Brooklyn), Eliza Zeitlin (NOLA), Elizabeth Shannon (NOLA), and SWOON (Brooklyn) make up this all women building team. They will create the enchanted village that will house our sound artists’ musical prototypes.
But even as we gear up for this fall, we are all setting our eyes on the future – DITHYRAMBALINA; our permanent sound sculpture and livable musical house. It would be an understatement to say that there are still some pretty big hurdles still ahead of us. Fundraising is definitely amongst them.
Swoon, the Airlift and all our artists want to assure you that additional pledges are appreciated and needed. Additional funding will go towards build costs for the Dithyrambalina house, developing more instrumentation, and paying our artists and musicians for all their hard work.
Please keep spreading the word about this project!
Prepping the site begins: Members of Airlift get help with a dirt delivery from neighbor DJ Paul.
