On Friday, September 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Mnemosyne Quartet will employ the power of sound to transport Kansas City streetcar passengers beyond the boundaries of the line to favorite Kansas City destinations, such as: The Zoo, Union Station, and The Kansas Speedway. For those passengers brave enough to participate, Mnemosyne encourages the streaming of our digital content, via your handheld device. The experience begins at the 14th street stop going north.
Transient Harmony is a sound installation and performance that will encompass the streetcar line between 9th and 14th street. Members of the quartet will travel with passengers presenting live music, while a newly created mobile app will allow the quartet to connect with downtown tourists, workers and residents both on and off the streetcar. While live performance will occur only along the streetcar line, you will be able to experience the unification of Kansas City’s urban soundscape through the app. In addition to electronic music, Transient Harmony will feature Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, and Baritone Saxophone performers.
