ARP 2013/14 Showcase - Opening Event

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:

GWYNETH ANDERSON: AERIAMETER

Media sculpture incorporating sound as a tool for communicating forms that don’t physically exist, yet are felt.

RYAN INGEBRITSEN3 SINGERS

In collaboration with Fides Krucker & Erica Mott
