THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 | 6-9 PM SALEM, MA
On Thursday, September 18, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) is open late for its monthly evening party series, PEM/PM. MIT takes over the museum for one night only. Researchers from the MIT Media Lab bring their latest project to PEM: radiO_o. Wear one of their battery-powered, button-like speakers and help crowdsource the soundtrack to the evening. Then, see MIT’s Opera of the Future create beautiful imagery generated from this interactive musical project. In the Atrium, experience the sounds of DJ Kongo and DJ White Animal Sound and check out an impressive collection of vintage radios courtesy of the New England Antique Radio Club. Stop by the Maker Lounge to paint with sound and to build your own mini speakers for your smartphone.
