    Saturday, May 25, 7:30pm. Join sound designer and artist Skooby Laposky for an evening of sonic exploration, musical performance, and conversation about his creative practice collaborating with nature. Through the use of biodata sonification, acoustic ecology and deep listening techniques, Laposky creates generative real-time sound installations, musical recordings, and live performances based on the dynamics of ecosystems that are often hidden or unconsidered. Laposky will be joined by his frequent collaborator, Los Angeles-based guitarist Charles Copley, performing as their new age ambient folk project Palm Reading. They’ll use the bioactivity surrounding the Cultural Center to create an immersive and restorative listening experience specific and unique to the Cape. Recent projects from Laposky include the ongoing site-specific public art project Hidden Life Radio. Hidden Life Radio was awarded a New York Foundation for the Art’s Tomorrowlands Project Award in 2022 and broadcast in 2023 from New York’s Hudson Valley. Hidden Life Radio will broadcast from the Cultural Center for the month of May capturing the reawakened energy of spring leaf out. Laposky also continues to collaborate with MIT’s Open Space Programming offering restorative experiences to the public using his biodata sonification practice. Palm Reading’s debut location release was Malibu: Point Mugu on the Myndstream wellness music label. Their latest location release is a collection of compositions recorded in Joshua Tree National Park. Upcoming location releases include Walden Pond and oases in Palestine and Israel. A tour of live Palm Reading shows is currently in the works for 2024-2025. $25.Tickets available at www.cultural-center.org or by calling 508-394-7100. The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is located at 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth.
