listening_booth_3.jpg Artists are so loveable. Not only are they always forward thinking and tackling today’s economic and political issues, but they also delve into the often overlooked problems associated with our precious environment. Ever wonder what it will be like when the polar ice caps melt and the oceans rise over 20 feet? Artist, Michael Carreira shows you firsthand. This of course would mean that NYC would totally be submerged, which, all in all, could be a good thing. But if you’re still holding it down, it’s nice to know that you can still bop your head, even if it is underwater.
Get ready to ROAR and build your very own Underground Listening Booth.

Enjoy! This is only a starter kit. You might want to expand to a swimming pool or lake, invite friends, start an underwater band. It is important to get children involved. As they get older and our planet gets warmer underwater music may be the only music.
