Times Square will host a site-specific piece of sound art called “Times3” as part of Prototype, an online experimental opera festival.
Composer Pamela Z and theater artist Geoff Sobelle collaborate on a site-specific sound journey through Times Square – past, present and imagined … What was this place? What is this place? And how did we get there? In this work of sound and space, the listener is brought into a realm where the city and the score come together, disintegrate and come together again.
Stroll through Times Square and listen to a sheet music specially designed for your experience. Or listen in from the comfort of your home and imagine a city carved by countless hands from a place once covered in trees … which might point in that direction again. This music, created from impressions of a space, was composed so that listeners tune in to the forces underfoot, in time and on the road. It is a soundscape created to make you discover the city.Times3 (Times x Times x Times) is the fourth iteration of PROTOTYPE from Out of Bounds, a platform for new vocal performance pieces set in unlikely places in New York City. Through the works, public places will become temporary spaces for contact, exchange and renewed social dynamics.
