Sonic Dust: Live Activation and Performances
Sunday, March 10th | 2-5 pm
Elysian Park (exact coordinates shared later )
The event will begin at 2:00pm, and performances will commence at 3:00pm.
 M&A invites you to join us for a live activation of Sonic Dust, our newest issue of M&A Archtiecture Radio, and experimental music performances by issue contributors Cody Perkins, Daniel Tovar, and Isaac Pross!

Sonic Dust explores the material, metaphor, and mobile conditions of dust, smog, and smoke and the generative engagements between beings and space. Inherently liminal as something both precarious and dynamic, dust is a formless challenger of form that subverts economies of order from architecture’s materiality, to the binary of cleanliness/dirtiness, to a possible method for “de-in-visibilizing” matter we otherwise ignore.
 The 96th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the Dolby® Theatre at Ovation Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC at the new time of 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT
