Audium then Upcider

Audium (

A Theatre Of Sound-Sculptured Space

Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre.

When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950's, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces.

Because of an unusual combination of art and technology -- AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians -- AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

They are only open Friday and Saturday nights for one show at 8:30pm.  Limited numbers of tickets are available in advance for $20.  Check "City Box Office" for when these are available for the January 10, 2014 show on line.  Otherwise, you can purchase Audium tickets at the door. 

There is an additional Group Support Fee of $3.00 to RSVP for this event.  The group support fee covers the cost of the Meetup group fees to Meetup, and whatever is left becomes a reserve to encourage group members to suggest, plan, and host future events.

Looking forward to "hearing" from you guys on January 10th!

Aloha and Be Well!

    I went to the Audium then Upcider Meetup that was sponsored by the SF/NorCal RealJock Gay/Bi Sports & Social Group, and it was a terrific experience. "A Theatre of Sound-Sculptured Space" -- it's probably not like anything you've seen or heard, but it's beautiful and profound. I recommend trying it out.

    Audium is a unique sound experience still curated by the founder. See it while it still exists!

      Sounds very fun. The group I'm going with is a gay ski group called SAGAnorth. I don't believe they have a Meetup presence but they might. I discovered them at the Castro Street Fair.

    • Alan G.

      All good, Craig. Maybe in the future there is the opportunity to cross-promote their event on this site. What matters is connecting Gay Guys Over 40! to fun and community!

    Next one ….
