The 3rd Megapolis comes to New York City, April 19-21, 2013,
with its headquarters at the New School.
The MEGAPOLIS Festival examines the sonic landscape of this sprawling urban environment by showcasing artists and documentarians based in the BosWash Megapolis alongside visitors to the region, particularly focusing on the cross-pollination of knowledge championed by audio enthusiasts working in different disciplines such as music, radio, installation, and film. Performances, workshops, and presentations are scattered throughout small galleries, university halls, outdoor spaces, and sometimes living rooms within one particular mega-neighborhood. As an attendee at the MEGAPOLIS Festival you are not a member of a passive audience — you’re actively adding context to what’s coming into your ears.
A weekend-long, multi-venue event dedicated to the craft of DIY audio creation. Artists, documentarians, musicians, and fans come together to share secrets on producing and presenting challenging audio works online, on-air, and on the stage.
