BASS RALLY II
Look/listen for Bass Rally at multiple locations around East Liberty on October 7th & 8th. You never know, your car may just become a thumping, wobbling bass-machine.
Bass Rally II is the second installment of a performance installation to "celebrate bass" through the practice of "social audio unity".
The concept is simple: cars in a parking lot can use their radio receivers to pick up a transmission of bass tones sent through a signal generated nearby. The audio is then shaped according to where the separate participants park their cars and how they adjust the tonal preferences of their stereo systems.
This is in contrast to the typical use of low-frequency bass tones to competitively distinguish the audio produced from individual cars and their drivers. This project harnesses and emphasizes the social interaction that is inherent within the function of parking lots as a gathering space. Communal effort creates an improvised audio installation in a public space.
