InterArts/CAP of George Mason Univeristy's School of Art and the Noise Awareness Consortium present:

Monday - Friday, April 23-27

Oto-Date Mic Check
GMU, Fairfax Campus

In a tribute to pioneering sound art theorist Akio Suzuki and his work with oto-date (open air listening ceremonies), participants are directed to stand and listen closely at each of 10 listening stations chosen across the topography of our campus. Listeners are then able to share their findings via social networking, either as sound files or as video uploaded to <facebook.com/NoiseAwarenessGMU2012>


The Japanese sound artist Akio Suzuki is one of the pioneers of Sound Art. Since the 1960s he has been analyzing selected sites for their acoustic attributes and developing corresponding topographies.

Noise Awareness 2011

The Oto-Date Mic Check Project ::: Interactive Acoustic Mapping of George Mason Campus
Opening Ceremony ::: Monday Morning April 23, 7:00 am Confucius Statue, Mason Pond

Weather permitting, join Mason School of Art professor Dr. Thomas Stanley at 7:00 am at the statue of Confucius located near the Mason Pond, across the street from the Center for the Arts, as he leads a procession of sonic awareness to mark-out ten listening stations chosen around the FairfaxCampus.
Then, throughout the week, members of the campus community (and our many visitors) will be able to use their cell phones and social media to create a dynamic acoustic map of the campus by recording the sounds heard at each of these stations...
