    broad·cast adjective \ˈbrod-kast\ 1: cast or scattered in all directions In October 2013, Crissy Field in San Francisco became a vast musical canvas as composer Lisa Bielawa’s massive, spatialized symphony unfolded, with hundreds of professional, student, and amateur musicians participating, including orchestras, bands, choruses, and experimental new music groups. The musicians began in the center of the field and dispersed outwards over 55 minutes, coordinated only by synchronized watches and long-distance musical cues. Roving listeners took in the performance from many different points of view.

      From October 26-27, 2013, San Francisco's Crissy Field was turned into a vast musical canvas as part of composer Lisa Bielawa’s expansive project, Airfield Broadcasts. Crissy Broadcast was organized in parallel with Tempelhof Broadcast, which took place in May 2013 in Berlin’s Tempelhof Air Field. Crissy Broadcast is a massive, spatialized symphony involving more than 800 professional, student and amateur musicians, including orchestras, bands, and experimental new music groups. These musicians performed on the grounds of Crissy Field for thousands of music lovers and unwitting park goers. The piece interprets and celebrates the site, allowing listeners to draw their own meaning and experience. Bielawa hopes that the project will have a palpable and sustainable impact on the city, saying “I would like to see this project bring about new partnerships, new vitality and new relationships between arts and civic institutions, between different generations and economic strata, between arts or music lovers and totally non-arts-identified park-goers enjoying surprise encounter with music as a 'happening' in the middle of their familiar and beloved city.”
