After four sold out performances at Cornell, The World According to Sound brings their hour-long surround sound live experiences to the Cherry Artspace. Listeners sit in darkness, surrounded by a ring of eight powerful loudspeakers, awash in sounds. The first night features the duo's iconic assemblage of sounds from all over the world, and the second night presents their brand-new piece: a sonic exploration of the Cornell campus. After a decade of working in public radio, creators Sam Harnett and Chris Hoff set out to do something that should not have been radical — to create radio focused on sound, not stories or information. So they launched The World According to Sound, a 90-second radio show that has played on NPR and been featured in The Washington Post, The New York Times and on HowSound. The pair went on to turn their podcast into a touring, communal listening event, and this fall, created a second piece as artists-in-residence at Cornell University.
