Subsurface: Site-Specific Sight and Sound
Subsurface was an evening of music, performance, and installation art presented in a gigantic limestone mine north of Pittsburgh, PA. The limestone mine is 50 million square feet, the size of nearly 1000 football fields, and contains 600 miles of underground roadways that connect thousands of cavernous spaces.
In Subsurface musicians, artists, designers, and performers from the CMU community filled these spaces with sound, dance, light, and visual/performance artwork. As the audience explored the vast installation and performance spaces they experienced immersive environments in which color, sound, and concept transformed the industrial space into dramatic audiovisual environments.
