While Nashville’s First Saturday Art Crawl has been a local staple for years, on Sat., Oct. 3 the city will be treated to its first SoundCrawl, thanks to two Belmont alumni. The brainchild of composers Aaron Doenges and Kyle J. Baker (both received Master’s of Music in Spring 2009), SoundCrawl:Nashville festival will feature ‘sound art’ by composers from all over the world. The organizers, both of whom have pieces in the festival, chose from 246 submissions received from 12 countries.
Most of the pieces are less than three minutes long and will be heard in the following galleries: BelArt Studio/Gallery, Downtown Presbyterian Church, MIR Gallery, The Showroom at Davis Art Advisory and Twist Art Gallery. Maps and information about the selections will be available in the galleries. For information, visit www.soundcrawlnashville.com.
