audioBus  a loop in New York City    

AudioBus B61 is a mapping experiment in the NYSoundmap. It considers the audible landscape of the B 61 bus route through neighborhood sounds in Brooklyn and Queens. We welcome field recordings, readings, conversations, and performances expressive of the many soundscapes along this line of public transportation.

Andrea Callard conceived and initiated AudioBus B61 in collaboration with Fred Krughoff and NYSAE members. Jonny Farrow contributed bus movies.

AudioBus B61 was first presented September 16th, 2006 at the Lucky Cat during the Conflux Festival within a presentation of the NY Soundmap, a project of the the New York Society for Acoustic Ecology.

Jonny Farrow's ambient video documents the live bus ride taken with festival participants 7-8pm that evening from Bedford and Grand to Long Island City and back.
