Synth Garden ~ October 23, 2021
a NYFA funded event
Hosted at POWRPLNT 

We welcome you into synth garden, a space for sonic collaboration, vibrational healing, and live artmaking on October 23rd, 2021 at POWRPLNT.

As we move past this seasonal transition and settle into fall, how can we reflect, listen, and attune ourselves to many ecosystems we inhabit? plants use their roots to listen and communicate to their neighbors. mushrooms and trees have an established network of communication to alert about insects, droughts, and other dangers. 🍄🌳🐞

Inspired by these relationships, we invite you into a day of sonic activations, blooming, and collaboration with both human and other-than-human friends (plants and synths!)
