Since its start in 2011, The Music Box has brought ambient sound art to thousands of people. While it’s built a reputation as a Roving Village, they’re now constructing a permanent installation in a 55,0000-square-foot forest with an adjoining warehouse in the Bywater.

A Night Out In New Orleans' New Bohemia

Jun 13, 2012
