What does Akron sound like? #SoundsofAkron

Last summer, hundreds of Northeast Ohioans recorded sounds from their life and submitted them to ASO via the Sounds of Akron cell phone app. Those sounds were folded into a brand new music composition by local composer Clint Needham. Come hear a musical representation of our city, our home.

Join ASO alongside the Akron Art Museum, Akron Canton Foodbank, Akron Coffee Roasters, Akron League of Creative Interventionists, Akron Marathon, Akron Sustainer, Akron Zoo, ArtsNow, Countryside, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Dear Akron, DJ Roger Riddle, EarthQuaker Devices, GAINS Joe Ott, NEOS, PorchRokr, RubberDucks, Shannon Casey, Stan Hywet, Summit Artspace, Summit County Historical Society, The Akronist, The Nightlight, The Social Dept, Tuesday Musical, Unbox Akron, University Dance Institute, Urban Buzz, Wandering Aesthetics, and YEPAW.
