"This year we're going to be sitting, having a six course meal.  I'll be eating and [Destiny will] be augmenting all of my sounds… A spoiler - I'm taking a corn on the cob, and drilling it out, and put a mic inside, and eating the corn off the cob," said Peter Fetterman.
On Saturday at 7 PM at the Pumping Station, a wide-ranging variety of musicians and artists will take-over the historical location off Common St.  It's a total art experience involving installations, and unusual music and sound displays.
Simon Whettan, a performance artist from England, plans to use the antique pumping equipment to create music.
"I'm using this set-up here to play and record sound through objects - will kind of change sound," said Whettan.
