Sounds of the City in the Concert Hall

Tod Machover of MIT is working with Miami’s New World Symphony academy to create an audio and visual masterpiece. He’s helping lead community tours to collect sounds and videos, and working with schools to teach students how to do the same. The result will be a piece for sounds, video and orchestra that tells a story unique to the Florida city.
