Since 1999, our Artist Residency Program (ARP) has provided more than 50 artists and ensembles with the opportunity to create new works that explore sound in a variety of artistic genres and cultural contexts. Projects have included audio art, music, installation, cinema, and other disciplines. The 2013/14 ARP is partially supported by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Technical assistance and engineering was provided for all projects by ESS Chief Engineer/Technical Supervisor Alex Inglizian.
From July 12th to August 24th, ESS will present the work of our 2013/14 resident artists in an exhibit in Audible Gallery, and at an opening event with live performances and a screening. The artists and brief descriptions of their projects are as follows:
Media sculpture incorporating sound as a tool for communicating forms that don’t physically exist, yet are felt.
Performance opera exploring the female body’s relationship with machinery, particularly in the context of the textile industry.
Short film that uses live action footage and drawn animation to present a surreal, mysterious depiction of a 200-year-old star-shaped brick fort in Alabama.
Improvising violin/percussion/electronics trio using inventive amplification, preparation, and live processing.
