Floating Lab Collective: Scream at the Economy

Floating Lab Collective is inviting anyone and everyone to share their most instinctive expressions of survival, warnings of danger, affirmations of power, explosions of anger, and utterances of anxiety. From a recorded archive of screaming six international composers will create new symphonies which will be performed on a specially-fabricated instrument (the Screamer above) in front of deserving financial institutions.

To participate:
• Call 646-402-5686, extension 90514, 24-hours a day.
• Scream at the economy (for best results, hold the phone a few inches away from your mouth).
• Download screaming music after June 25th here.

Floating Lab is developing a series of economy-related art projects this summer, culminating in a fall exhibition at the Cafritz Art Center, Montgomery College.

Floating Lab Collective is the community arts program of Provisions Learning Project, 1875 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 1100, Washington, DC 20009 (202)299 0460.
