A mobile vessel, the Beat Bus 2.0 brings community building and performance art to public spaces through electronic drumming. Encouraging participants to experiment with beats, harmonies, and melodies, the drumming cart will be be equipped with the tools needed to make music on the spot! The second integration of the concept, this project aims to be more accessible and mobile than in previous years. Finkelmeier will design and build the project at Hammer East, an artist collective space in East Boston, and premiere the project in August at the same location. It will be free and open to the public, encouraging all to explore their creativity through music!
Beat Bus 2.0 is made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts' Creative City Program, with funding from The Barr Foundation and with additional support from The Boston Foundation.
