This fall, the Toronto Public Library is hosting a series of experimental music performances called Quiet Concerts with its artist-in-residence Christopher Willes. Unlike a regular concert experience that involves a stage, a large audience and plenty of excitement and noise, these Quiet Concerts unfold through wireless headphones and people are invited to explore the library, read a book or just listen as the performances are carried out.
While a limited number of wireless headphones will be available to borrow for the "intimate, low-volume concerts," the event also makes it possible for people to come prepared with their own smartphone and headphones for the experience. The headphone concert series at the Toronto Public Library takes place on Sundays and kicks off on September 15th.
