Benefits for the AMC "Sound Track" in Detroit and D.C. this Saturday (April 5)

The organizers of the AMC2014 "Sound Track" have organized simultaneous benefit events in Detroit and Washington D.C. for this Saturday, April 5.

The "Sound Track" is a series of workshops at the AMC that will explore "how music and sound shapes our perception of each other, how we listen to each other, and how we think about the future."

About the "Sound Track" of AMC2014

Music and sound are powerful communication and organizing tools that have shaped and archived social movements since our earliest ancestors. We will explore how music and sound shapes our perception of each other, how we listen to each other, and how we think about the future. We will investigate soundtracks of our past to understand the potential of music and sound, explore tools that allow us to collaboratively build the soundtracks of our lives and movements, listen to each other to understand the diversity of sound each person carries, and reflect on influences that have shaped sound and music over time. Participants will walk away with insight on the ways in which music and sound influences our lives and communities and how we can use these tools to shape the worlds we want to see.
