Time Out says

Experience a series of 30-channel sound installations played on the Pritzker Pavilion's array of speakers that are suspended on the trellis above the Great Lawn during the Sonic Pavilion Festival. Local nonprofit Experimental Sound Studio commissioned six 20-minute pieces from artists like Whitney Johnson (Matchess), Natalie Chami (TALsounds), Kioto Aoki, Stephan Moore, Kitundu, I Gusti Ngurah Kertayuda and Bill Parod.

Commissioned as part of the City of Chicago's celebration of the Year of Chicago Music, each sound installation is mixed across 30 channels, allowing visitors to move between speakers and experience a shifting soundscape. The two-hour Sonic Pavilion Festival program will be played on eight dates between August 5 and September 30.
