Peter Hatch’s Guerilla Sound Events

  This weekend was the Junction Arts Festival in Toronto. A Bike Friday folding tandem from the Bicycle Forest was used for one of the performance pieces. Peter Hatch’s ‘Guerilla Sound Events’, with Margaret Bardos, Benjamin Covey, Jamie Hoffman and Andrea Naccaretto, are short, spontaneous performance art pieces intended to draw attention to urban soundscapes through unannounced sonic interventions. While often humorous in nature, they also call for a more active role in shaping our urban soundscapes. This video captures a moment from the performance where the riders stop, break into a few lines of the song “Daisy Bell” and then carry on down the street.
