PIMA! Fest presents Sounding Ennis, a communal table where we hear recordings made by Ennis residents. The recordings are combined and manipulated into a real-time generative soundscape, so it continues without start or end. Listeners are invited to sit around the table and plug in their headphones, sharing an experience that is both public and private. The table also acts as a light board, highlighting the community members who contributed the recordings. Sounding Ennis juxtaposes the different recordings to reveal differences and similarities of the diverse sonic experiences of the people of Ennis.
