Audium: See With Your Ears

Right in the Pacific Heights ‘hood of San Francisco you’ll find some strange retro-futuristic dome: Probably the only one of its kind, the sound theatre called Audium is a sound-sculptured space that’s been around for over 30 years. It’s a venue of musical experimentation with its physical space being one of its main instruments. The peculiar architecture borrows from early futuristic icons such as Flash Gordon episodes! The music you encounter inside is composed by eighty-year-old songwriting genius and Audium creator Stan Shaff, playing a cross between Philip Glass and something you might have heard if you’re into deep-sea scuba diving.
