Visual Artists and Filmmakers Resonate! A Synthesis of Sight and Sound, a multidisciplinary event being held September 28, 2011 at Oberon in Cambridge, MA is looking for visual artists and filmmakers. The intention of the evening is to allow young artists in the local/regional community to get together, possibly collaborate, and strengthen one another’s audiences. The evening will consist of 3 to 4 bands, and an art sale to begin before the music and go on throughout. The event will feature musicians that are blending elements of folk, pop, jazz, and improvisation in their music. The intention is for an open genre approach to filter throughout the evening. Visual artists are sought for selling and showcasing work, as well as filmmakers for collaborating with the featured musicians. Contact Leah at ResonateCambridge@gmail.com.
