Critical Mass Ride: Friday, July 31, 2009
Bike Hack Workshop + Soundride is a collaborative workshop and mobile sound performance that enables participants to contribute to the acoustic ecology of the city through simple sonic experimentation. During the workshop, participants are invited to construct bicycle-mounted noisemakers made of contact microphones, playing cards and mini amplifiers and to take part in Calgary’s monthly Critical Mass ride.
