Flatbush Av Brooklyn College (2,5)

Dennis Shafer plays works by Benjamin Britten, David Krebs, and J.S. Bach, and Soundpaints responses to these pieces! All elements of nature have their respective pitches. A beehive normally buzzes at the pitch of A natural.  The earth vibrates at a little above C sharp.

Members of Tours Soundpainting Orchestra will join the Brooklyn Soundpainting Ensemble.  Come later to the Talent School around the corner to see the TSO perform afterward!  No Soundpainting performance is the same.
