All Ethos for Anythink
Alt Ethos, Singing Tree Workshop
Anythink Perl Mack, 7611 Hilltop Circle
Saturday, March 16, 2 to 3 p.m.

Think interactive and you’ll find yourself on the cutting edge of public art, which is exactly where the Denver-based visual-technology outfit Alt Ethos is at, whether it be virtual reality, projection mapping or 360° video. Under the wing of Alt Ethos, a new public sculpture, “The Singing Tree,” has been installed at the Anythink Perl Mack library, and it’s time to teach people how to use the work’s color-coded interactive Specdrums to control sounds, beats and loops. Meet the makers and learn something new at the all-ages workshop.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
