From the venue:The Historic Oakland Foundationâ€™s latest effort to bring the cemetery to life through various art forms debuts this Sat., May 2, 2-7 p.m., with the Cryptophonic Tour. In partnership with ROAMtransmissions, the interactive event will combine original sonic landscapes inspired by the graveyardâ€™s history with works inspired by its past. In front of mausoleums, tombstones, and burial plots, musicians such as Oryx and Crakeâ€™s Ryan Peoples, writers like American Afterlife author Kate Sweeney, and academics including Emory University professor Gary Laderman will bring to life the graveyardâ€™s long-forgotten past. The tourâ€™s proceeds will benefit Historic Oakland Cemetery, the Arts at Oakland program, and participating artists.
