Soundtrips

Metro Art Presents Soundtrips is a collection of transit-inspired sounds and stories to amplify your ride. Created in 2020 and 2021, the program series is compiled in a playlist for Metro riders’ listening pleasure.

From engaging first hand stories of music and place that take you on a journey from swinging Sunset Boulevard in the late 1960s into Downtown’s punk rock cafes of the early 1980s and over to multiple eras of Leimert Park across time…to environmental soundscapes centered on nature and neighborhoods that drive the heart and imagination…. and groundbreaking musicians in classical, jazz and beyond performing live on Union Station’s public piano to filter the sounds of our major transit hub out to the sidewalks and streets…

Listen to Soundtrips at every turn while you traverse the wide ranging terrain that is Los Angeles County!
