  • Thumb lotsrotunda 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    The L.O.T.S. In Your Future Showcase is an annual fundraiser for Life Outside The Streets Inc, a 501c3 non-profit organization.  We bring together a collection of artists from the Tri-State area to share HipHop, Neo-Soul, and Drama material that speaks to the issues we face as African Americans in the United States. Please come out and and enjoy some of the hidden jewels within the Tri-State area.

    The proceeds will help us provide a platform for students to be discovered and share their talents in a similar showcase setting. This platform will also serve as a tool to encourage acceptable academic and behavioral achievement in the classroom; as well as allow students to develop transferrable marketable skills pertinent to establishing a career in music outside of artistry. 

    Meet and Greet Artist at 6pm!

    We are asking for a $10 donation, however we are accepting all donations as admitions to this Showcase!

  • 8:00 PMIN THE SANCTUARY! COMPOSING THE TINNITUS SUITES: 2016 - a concert series about hearing damage pres. PHILADELPHIA HEARING DAMAGE
  • Thumb ts main01 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

    Daniel Fishkin and Bowerbird present

    COMPOSING THE TINNITUS SUITES: 2016 

    a concert series about hearing damage 

    September 23, September 30, October 2, October 16 in the Sanctuary of The Rotunda

    In 2008, composer Daniel Fishkin's ears started ringing, and they never stopped. Doctors offered no solace besides, "You get used to it." In the absence of a medical cure, Fishkin vowed to find a creative solution. "I do not want to get used to my hearing damage - I want to use it." 

    Composing the Tinnitus Suites: 2016 is a concert series and sound installation that investigates the aesthetics of hearing damage. The series is anchored by the Lady's Harp - a system of 20-foot long piano wires activated by mixer feedback, using guitar pickups and pressure transducers to coax the strings into vibration. The Lady's Harp's buzzing strings create a forest of sound; as you walk around the room, the notes change along with your movements. The concerts are buoyed by conversations with neuroscientists and scholars who confront hearing loss or disability in their practice and personal lives. To make 'Tinnitus Music' is not just to compose sounds, but also to compose situations that can break the isolation of the experience of hearing damage. Composing the Tinnitus Suites is about listening to the way tinnitus makes one listen.

    COMPOSING THE TINNITUS SUITES: 2016 

    a concert series about hearing damage 

    September 23, September 30, October 2, October 16 in the Sanctuary of The Rotunda

    In 2008, composer Daniel Fishkin's ears started ringing, and they never stopped. Doctors offered no solace besides, "You get used to it." In the absence of a medical cure, Fishkin vowed to find a creative solution. "I do not want to get used to my hearing damage - I want to use it." 

    Composing the Tinnitus Suites: 2016 is a concert series and sound installation that investigates the aesthetics of hearing damage. The series is anchored by the Lady's Harp - a system of 20-foot long piano wires activated by mixer feedback, using guitar pickups and pressure transducers to coax the strings into vibration. The Lady's Harp's buzzing strings create a forest of sound; as you walk around the room, the notes change along with your movements. The concerts are buoyed by conversations with neuroscientists and scholars who confront hearing loss or disability in their practice and personal lives. To make 'Tinnitus Music' is not just to compose sounds, but also to compose situations that can break the isolation of the experience of hearing damage. Composing the Tinnitus Suites is about listening to the way tinnitus makes one listen.
