Localore Plays Austin: Speaker<>Street<>Screen
KUT-FM’s Austin Music Map (AMM) is a year-long exploration of the city's abundant and diverse musical subcultures. Blending on-line, broadcast, and street media, it’s one of 10 public media innovation projects that AIR is producing for the national Localore initiative (see airmediaworks.org). Join AMM creator/producer Delaney Hall, Kara Oehler of Zeega, and Jessica Clark of AIR for an immersive digital tour of Austin's off-the-radar venues. The trio will then lead attendees through a workshop-style discussion of strategies for creating "full spectrum" interactive docs.
Experience the power of Austin’s musical underbelly by bicycle, post-panel. Hall will lead a group of adventuresome bicyclists to musical outposts from the map on a tour designed explicitly for SXSWers. We’ll meet/greet scene-makers at venues such as the White Horse and Esquina Tango. The tour is free, but space is limited. Sign up today at http://airmediaworks.org/BikeTour.
