AudioBus - Energized Vectors

  • Tenderloin Museum 398 Eddy Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)
AudioBus is an immersive, uniquely San Franciscan performance experience. As a mobile venue, AudioBus will take audiences on a journey in the city where audiences can hear a live score on an open-top double-decker bus with installed headphones sonically customized for this experience. For this season’s tour, we are partnering with the Tenderloin Museum which holds a wealth of history in visual, textual, and auditory recordings about the neighborhood. As a symbiotic entryway to collaborative performance "Sonic Portraits of a Shifting City", Kevin Corcoran and Jen Boyd explore an energetic understanding of architecture through sound. This performance includes the sounds of open public places, electromagnetic architectures, and thoughts from individuals who have shaped this neighborhood by their actions. Through listening and mapping, "Sonic Portraits of a Shifting City" seeks to identify relationships of embodied energy to cultural value in architectural space through narrative and soundscape while calling attention to the voices of people who have worked to create community in the environments recorded, places which continue to shift with uncertain futures.
