Ghost Line X: An Immersive Sound & Light Experience
April 4, 2023 — Waterloo Greenway and Fusebox are proud to announce Ghost Line X, an immersive sound and light experience at Waterloo Park on Saturday, April 15, 2023. Produced by experiential arts collective Rolling Ryot, Ghost Line X is a massive, 15-channel, immersive sound art project that investigates the creative potential of sound in motion. This unique motion-through-space experience moves linearly from one channel to the next across fifteen large speakers arranged linearly across 300-feet inside the Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park.
Composers from across the globe have been commissioned to create sound compositions designed to activate the scale and spatial qualities of this sound system. Each of the created compositions is uniquely engaged with the theme of transportation technology and the vector quality of the sounds they produce. The project features compositions by:
- Sebastian DeWay (Montreal, Canada)
- Brian Wenner (Brooklyn, NY)
- Lyman Hardy (Austin, TX)
- Augusto Meijer (Netherlands)
- James Talambas (Ft. Worth)
- Emmett Palaima (Brooklyn)
- Chill Pillsbury/Hexseq (Austin)
“Rolling Ryot has continued to expand the sphere of unique spatial sound systems, harkening back to their Rainforest Reverb in 2019 with their sonic reinterpretations of an abstracted rainforest inside of a 5-story parking garage. Ghost Line X challenges a new landscape this time around and engages directly with the potential of a sonic inspired future.” –Fusebox Team
Visitors can experience Ghost Line X from 7:30-10:00 PM at Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park for one-night only! The event is FREE and open to the public though RSVP are encouraged. It is appropriate for all ages. Visitors are encouraged to bring their blankets and lawn chairs. Bike riding and ride-sharing are encouraged.
Ghost Line X is produced by Kyle Evans and Barna Kantor with the support Nelda Studios and dadaLab. To learn more about Rolling Riot, visit RollingRyot.net.
