Amp is a public broadcast system in disguise – each colorful structure is an array of speakers, delivering immersive surround sound. Concealed inside the walls of AMP is a simple and inexpensive piece of audio technology called a transducer that turns everyday objects into powerful speakers. Working in collaboration with Levy Lorenzo, a New York City-based electronic instrument designer, AMP is designed to broadcast the sounds of IDEAS CITY back to visitors as a looping, colliding, and ever-evolving sound landscape. At times, AMP will be switched to public announcement mode to broadcast live programming, such as lectures and panel discussions.
