Schizophonia is a term coined by R. Murray Schafer to describe the splitting of an original sound and its electroacoustic reproduction. The invention of electroacoustic equipment enables the recording and transmission of sound to anywhere around the world – setting the theme for soundpedro 2020.

A simultaneous community sound event will begin at 7:30pm in which virtual attendees are invited to live stream soundpedro into their local communities from windows, balconies, and front porches. Artists’ sound works and artifacts will be continuously released through June 29th. A SynthLab online dance party will stream on June 30th at 7pm. Only July 4th, an interactive living map of soundpedro2020schizophonia will be released. Sound works will continue to be available online through Thanksgiving. Attendees are invited to share images and sound using #soundpedro.
