The Fol Chen Verbal Algorithm Composer-Free Song Generator Workshop

Part of Machine Project

Samuel Bing and Sinosa Loa of the band Fol Chen (Asthmatic Kitty) will host a field recording workshop in preparation for the following day’s Verbal Algorithm Composer-Free Song Generator. Stop by and borrow a field recorder to tape your own sounds from around the museum, then give them back to Bing and Sinosa Loa for use in future song-making.
