A Quick Update

DBB72F3C-F34C-4B91-B811-8637FBEC2BB4Two weeks ago Fleet week struck San Francisco. It included Marching band competitions, boat tours, K9 appreciation, and the main event, the airshow. There are a few different groups that fly in the airshow, with the headliner being the blue angels.

Although I was warned countless times about the noise of the planes while they practice the days before, it did not stop me from jumping out of my seat at work every time one went by. It was like hearing fireworks explode without actually seeing the result. It’s just a large noise in the background and you can’t tell where it’s coming from.

The flight teams practiced throughout Thursday and performed from noon-4 on Friday Saturday and Sunday, so by the end of the week I got slightly used to them. During their Saturday performance I walked to the park close to my house and got a view of the planes flying around the entire city with a beautiful backdrop of downtown.

This past weekend was slow but busy, filled with couch buying, TV grabbing, and mouse hunting for the entirety of Saturday.

But on Sunday I finally got the chance to visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). It was a quick visit and I will definitely be returning.

But my favorite exhibit there was top floor sonic installations. Sound art holds a special place in my heart and I get super excited about them.

A lot of it has to do with the idea of being present, and experiencing the piece in person, because as you’ll find out from this blog it is very very hard to explain sound art through pictures or writing. You’ll just have to come down to San Francisco to hear it for yourself!
