Olivia Block, Shawn Decker, Ryan Ingebritsen, Lou Mallozzi: 'Train Time'

  • Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park 201 East Randolph Street Chicago, IL, 60601 United States (map)

A stunning sound portrait incorporating the clank of wheels over rail ties, the hiss of boilers, the roar of diesels, the call of train whistles, the whoosh of tomorrow’s super-fast trains–a rhythmic reminder that today’s downtown lakefront park was once a huge rail yard extending to the water’s edge.

Commissioned by and co-presented with the 2008 Chicago Humanities Festival.
