[announcement]

a walk to meet a sound, 15 April 2012

A tree will fall in Mount Baker National Forest in Washington State, USA, on Sunday, 15 April 2012 at 00:00:00 United States Pacific Standard Time.

The sound of the tree hitting the ground will take 6 hours, 31 minutes, and 47* seconds to travel 7686.35km. It will arrive in central Copenhagen on 15 April at 15:31:47 Central European Summer Time.

You are invited to join us in a walk to meet the sound. This walk will begin at Toves Galleri on Sunday, 15 April at exactly 09:00:00 – the moment the tree hits the ground in the faraway forest – and will last for the time it takes the sound to travel from the forest to us.

Please be prepared to leave your phone and internet devices behind, and to enter the void.

[*Please note that the sound arrived 4 seconds ahead of schedule.]
