Curated by Bay Area Sound Ecology featuring works and talks by Bernie Krause, Jeremiah Moore, Aaron Ximm and Andrea Williams. Phantom Power is a free site-specific concert superimposing potential and vanished soundscapes over the existing urban soundscape at Yerba Beuna Gardens, in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Amidst the myriad contemporary sonic identifiers present in the garden today, the audience is invited to experience a phantom image of other soundscapes which were lost to history, which never came to be, or which may yet come to pass. BASE co-chairs Aaron Ximm and Jeremiah Moore curate a selection of artists to create a concert envisioned as a transient's intervention, reminding listeners that the familiar soundscape of the places we inhabit, like sound itself, is ephemeral and contingent.
