soundpedro 2017

The first soundpedro took place at Angels Gate Cultural Center on June 3, 2017, 5-10pm.

In 2013, 100 years after the release of Luigi Russolo’s Futurist manifesto “The Art of Noises,” the Long Beach-based art group, FLOOD, presented its last SoundWalk.

With SoundWalk gone, sound artists and art professionals felt a vacuum. Following the final SoundWalk, however, sound artists and art professionals perceived a vacuum. They had lost a high-profile event that introduced mainstream communities to sound art, a form often relegated to the margins. In response, Amy Eriksen, Executive Director of Angels Gate Cultural Center, approached FLOOD with the proposition of starting soundpedro. Angels Gate was fertile ground for this endeavor. In 1998, the venue had initiated experiments in the area of sound that would move out of San Pedro and lead to the creation of the Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS) in Los Angeles.
