Chris Balduc is the Special Events Coordinator for CymaSpace and he's engaged in Cymatics....the art of making sound visible. Founded in 2014 by Myles de Bastion and run by dedicated volunteers, CymaSpace aims to creatively make music and sound more accessible to the deaf community. Chris demonstrated the iconic symbol - a sort of light-sound structure in the shape of a star - through rhythmic clapping and whisttling. The lights flash along with the clapping and seem to slide to the whistling.
The Northwest Deaf Arts Festival is Saturday June 16th from 2-8pm at Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi Ave in North Portland. Tickets are at nwdeafartsfest.com
