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.

Students will be paired together and correspond only through sounds they record from their everyday lives.  Should be fun.
