Sound & Vision: Detour 360

Detour 360 explores the sonic terrain of the great state of Colorado — from Trinidad to the Canyons of the Ancients to Greeley to Red Rocks to all points in between — in all its wild and human diversity.  Internationally renowned sound artist and musician Bruce Odland, founder of the now world-famous “Tank” in Rangely, serves as our guide through nature, cities, communities, events, and more, leading a merry band of fellow sonic explorers, and encountering dozens of other artists, makers, and innocent bystanders everywhere they go.  Along the way, the travelers compose audio-visual portraits of a vast territory where everything resonates at weird and wonderful western frequencies.  They’ll eventually share these portraits with the wider world at select events, festivals, and distribution channels — but this special premier at the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater in Fort Collins provides a first ever peek behind the scenes of an all-encompassing Colorado creative experience.

Presentation will begin at 7:00pm followed by Q&A

Tickets: $5/$3 for museum members
