Voyages: Chapter 1
July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$50
At the intersection of art and sciences lies Voyages, an original immersive event series at the National Aquarium that inspires connection to nature and celebrates all things Baltimore. At Voyages: Chapter 1, voyagers will embark on an audio-focused tour of the National Aquarium’s exhibits, listening to original soundscape tracks on curated composed by local beatboxer, vocal percussionist and breath artist Shodekeh. This audio will be inspired by months of incubating within the Aquarium, gleaning inspiration about biodiversity and animal communication, meeting with experts within our walls and in the field – human and animal alike – and shaped by conversations about biodiversity and animal communication between Shodekeh and our lead featured scientist for the event, Ashakur Rahaman of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The audio waves of the soundscape will be translated into visual displays projected throughout the building, allowing voyagers to engage in a multisensory journey.
Following the immersive audio tour in the Aquarium’s Pier 3 building, voyagers will make their way to Pier 4 for an after party featuring a live music DJ set from Baltimore-based musician and producer Wendel Patrick, as well as local vendors serving up some of the best of the Baltimore food scene. Voyages is a 21+ event; alcoholic and zero-proof beverages will be available throughout the experience.
This is a one-of-a-kind celebration of all things Baltimore and the connection we share with the natural world. This is the Aquarium like you’ve never experienced it before. This is Voyages. Are you ready to embark on a journey into the deep?
