TUNNEL@Under the Viaduct

July 9, 2014

TUNNEL is a collaborative environmental sound installation by CMC/Sound Arts community members Victoria Estok, Dylan Kario, Nolan Lem, Jess Malcolm, Ryan Pratt, and Douglas Repetto. Ambient and environmental sounds from the streets, the viaduct, the river, and the park are filtered and played back inside the tunnel while visitors explore the curious acoustical properties of the large curved space.

TUNNEL was created as part of Under the Viaduct, with support from the Computer Music Center and the West Harlem Art Fund. The installation is in the large tunnel just up the hill from the Cotton Club on Riverside Drive. Enter via the stairs across the street from Floridita. Bring your ears!

An Experimental Workshop: The Value of Art in the Community

February 28, 2014

Saturday, March 1, 2014 12:00–5:00 PM 

Roosevelt Public School  Roosevelt, NJ

As part of Roosevelt Arts Project program series addressing budget cuts to arts funding — we will gather stories and reflections around the role of art in present day Roosevelt. Open to all residents — past and present. Come spend the afternoon or even just an hour at this informal work space. Participation will help shape a collective project. This is just the beginning eventually the idea is that former RPS art teacher Barbara Atwood and I will be crafting the community response into toy theater.

Snow, waveforms and pixels … audio postcards between NY and Argentina.

January 24, 2014

Keeping warm: teaching sound art and digital art at Purchase College and NYU Steinhardt this term.

Looking forward to an experimental sound exchange — which will be a series of audio postcards between a small group of composition students from University of Córdoba and my ‘non composition’ NYU students. Students will be paired together and correspond only through sounds they record from their everyday lives.  Should be fun.

Victoria 2

Wandered around and recorded the Hakalalu Forest and Mauna Kea while Natasha Florentino captured moments like this in two diverse ecosystems. The results of our travels will be transformed into an environmental education App: RETURN OF THE NATIVE (fun side project for me) which will extend Laurie Sumiye’s  Struggle for Existence project.

Death & Design!

February 23, 2013

Nick Jelen of Action Mill is developing a blog on Death & Design which takes a look at projects that explore various cultural attitudes about Death. Audio as the Realm of the Dead is featured — but more importantly Nick and I found ourselves intensely engaged in a conversation topic that most people avoid … especially when first meeting.
