Los Angeles–based artist Elana Mann leads a participatory sonic engagement inspired by pioneering volcanologist Frank Alvord Perret, who invented geophones to listen to the earth's subterranean rumblings. Mann has designed contemporary listening devices to allow visitors to detect real and imagined murmurs of history in locations around the Getty Villa. What sounds will you hear? Open to 20 participants. This is a free program. Sign-up begins 15 minutes before the program at the Tour Meeting Place.
Activity repeats at 1:45, 2:30, and 3:15 p.m.
