From the venue:

The Historic Oakland Foundation’s latest effort to bring the cemetery to life through various art forms debuts this Sat., May 2, 2-7 p.m., with the Cryptophonic Tour. In partnership with ROAMtransmissions, the interactive event will combine original sonic landscapes inspired by the graveyard’s history with works inspired by its past. In front of mausoleums, tombstones, and burial plots, musicians such as Oryx and Crake’s Ryan Peoples, writers like American Afterlife author Kate Sweeney, and academics including Emory University professor Gary Laderman will bring to life the graveyard’s long-forgotten past. The tour’s proceeds will benefit Historic Oakland Cemetery, the Arts at Oakland program, and participating artists.
