Musicircus in Photos, Part 1

Last night’s Musicircus seemed to be a huge success due to the participation of tons of eager musicians and observers. Around 9:30pm, sounds began trickling down each hallway until every space in the building was filled with noise. For an hour, the observer’s experience was all his or her own. Nooks and crevasses explored and one’s pace of wandering around added up to create a unique piece of music for each listener. With so many fantastic musicians scattered throughout the building, some were inclined to spend more time watching some groups than others. But, alas, the sounds of their neighbors could not be avoided!

The man of the hour, curator of the evening Brian Jones, played percussion — as well as made conduction-like hand gestures (in Part 2) — with Fight the Big Bull.

There were so many musicians, and thus so many photos, that selections from the photos will be posted in two parts. View the entire set on Flickr. Video and audio are also on their way.
