Livestream: Sound of Wave in Channel

Programmed by Thingamajigs

This eleven-hour marathon experience, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., combines spoken word and sound. The work is built around Bay Area poet Stephen Ratcliffe’s work of the same name that documents one thousand poems written in one thousand consecutive days. Recorded at BAMPFA with Ratcliffe and the Thingamajigs Performance Group, this work explores the relationship between things as they are observed in the world and how they might be transcribed or transformed as works of art. The artists join us for a live Q&A following the performance at 8 p.m.

This is one of four programs presented as part of the Thingamajigs July virtual residency. Thingamajigs is a genre-crossing arts organization founded in the East Bay that promotes music and other art forms created with found materials or alternate tuning systems.
