Constellations – new project for Nashville Metro Arts!

So I am taking my new friends from Constellations out for a spin today at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville. There is a large maker day event with MTRAS and NashMicro and I will be joining them around 1 in the main auditorium – to the left before the ticket counters. This is the free part of the museum.

More official dates will be posted soon!

I have created a brand new interactive audiovisual animation using the Xbox Kinect and there are 6 characters: SunSynth, Glide, Spike, CatEye, FireFly and BlueGhost.

I cannot express how excited I am to be selected for a funding award to create temporary public art in Nashville! It is a dream come true!

Funding Awards to Learning Lab Artists

Now Fiscally Sponsored!

Donate now!
 

I am so excited to be fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas! Currently, I am raising funds for “Conversations with Cranes,” a musical composition and interactive video project supported in part by the Puffin Foundation.

I am making field recordings of Cranes at several of their stopover points in the US, recording their calls and capturing video. My composition will feature conversations between these calls and Western and Eastern oboes. There will be an interactive video piece in this series as well.

Your donation towards this work is now tax deductible!

Thank you Fractured Atlas!

Meeting NEA Chair Jane Chu in Nashville!

What an amazing honor to meet Dr. Jane Chu this morning!

I was tapped along with three other lucky Learning Lab artists to attend a small meeting this morning with NEA’s Chairman Jane Chu and Ayanna Hudson, the NEA Director of Arts Education.  Ann Pope the Executive Director of the Tennessee Arts Commission was there and the discussion was hosted by our amazing Nashville Metro Arts Commission.

Chairman Chu hosted a Town Hall Meeting this afternoon and shared a little more of her personal story as a classical pianist, instrumentalist and artist.

What an inspiring spokesperson for the importance and power of art.

Puffin Foundation Grant!

I just received a grant from the Puffin Foundation! It supports a new project that will mix field recordings of Cranes with Eastern and Western oboes, interactions and ultimately visuals. Many thanks for your support of this project Puffin Foundation!
