Harmonic Conduit: O+A

Harmonic Conduit, by O+A   sonically links two communities, Northeastern University and Lower Roxbury  with a new sound installation in Boston’s Ruggles Station. The asymetry of power between the communities can be heard in the soundscapes O+A tap to create a real-time harmony between the two. It runs 24 hours a day as part of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s exhibition, “Listen Hear: The Art of Sound”, with funding by the Goethe Institut, Boston.
