Alex and Bilal have been working on creating their part of a concert with no sound.

If you are looking for an exciting sensory perception tonight, head on over to CAVS!
Acting as a silent speaker, a raised floor at MIT’s Center for Advanced Visual Studies will be activated to insert low-frequency vibrations into the space of architecture. The floor will be used alternately as a platform, instrument, and stage for an event in three parts.
In the first part, the floor will be used as a platform on which to hold a dialog (in speech and sign) between artists, designers, scientists and students. In the second part, the floor will be used as an instrument in a workshop on resonant vibrations. In the third part, the floor will become a stage for performances and a silent dance party. This project is part of an investigation of the politics of experience.
