    Re:sound is an experimental music series started by Jen Boyd, focusing on exploring the relationship between forgotten spaces and the natural environment. The event is held in a concrete munitions storage magazine measuring 55′x100′ with ceilings over 15′. The architecture of the building traps sound resulting in a prolonged reverberation. The series will launch its first show in February 2015 as part of the San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival, celebrating the annual bird migration to the Bay. http://www.re-sound.net/ Repeats Sunday, Feb 15, 3-5 pm
