On Saturday, June 6, while teams are hard at work strategizing, designing, and coding, we want to shine a spotlight on all of the wonderful social + civic efforts that are already taking place in the Austin community.

The petting zoo will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 6.

Musical Performance: Resiliency and Response to Stressors and Shocks

Feast your eyes and ears on a performance by Dr. Thomas Echols.

Datasets describing long-term stressors (drought, population growth) and short-term stessors (floods, wildfire, music festivals) are used to generate contours and structure for a durational electronic music performance.  The data is scaled and mapped so that the sound world is intentional and engaging, while also creating a sonic image of the city as seen through its experience and response to adversity.
