Sonic Puppetry: A PerformanceSunday, July 22, 7pm-9pm – Audiotheque at ArtCenter/South Florida, 924 Lincoln Rd #201, Miami Beach

Sonic Puppetry Performance is featuring Audiotheque’s resident artist John Driscoll and his ensemble of ultrasonic puppetry workshop participants. John Driscoll, who has received commissions from the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, among other accomplishments, is known for his work as puppeteer and creator of unique musical instruments. This performance uses small instruments that generate sound using sound above our hearing translated into the audible region. These instruments use various methods of creating small amounts of movement including the use of springs, motors, solenoids, and other mechanical means. Driscoll will direct the sonic puppetry ensemble in performance.
