Sept 29, 2007, Toronto:
Terrible Noises for Beautiful People:
Nuit Blanche Edition

This was an all-night series of participatory sound improvisations, part of Nuit Blanche , presented with Mercer Union. The event ran from sunset to sunrise. Festival-goers were brought in off the street and invited to make noises with each other. The results were amazing. Groups of forty to a hundred people took part, with a total of around a thousand people over the course of the night, making incredible sounds.
