News May 2020

Spring Forward!

The world has definitely changed since I started this newsletter in March! The COVID-19 pandemic has put us all in survival mode. For more information, check out this New York State Council on the Arts page of resources.

This year will be difficult but we are committed to our mission to help contemporary artists create new media art. Art can play a big role in visioning as we move forward.

We are impacted by the mandatory closure of our studios but we have moved online with our technical tutorials for the Technology Immersion Program and programming for our Artists in Residence. Our new venue is Twitch.TV – the next event is May 19th with AIR Mike Bullock. Sign up and get notified! – Carol Parkinson, Executive Director

Congrats to composer Ellen Fullman on her New York Times article and on the Guggenheim Award that she received this year. Check out an early recording of Longitudinal Vibration, a musical instrument composed of 50 foot wires coupled to a plywood box resonator. Played by the composer and David Weinstein. Recorded on June 17, 1984. Published by Harvestworks on TELLUS, the Audio Cassette Magazine #4.

Congrats also to 2016 Resident Žibuoklė Martinaitytėon her Guggenheim award. She presented “Vanishing Lands” , a 5.1 surround sound composition for pre-recorded instruments, video and electronics. Working with True Rosaschi for the electronic music and video component, both artists were equally involved involved in designing the shape of the audio installation, researching and acquiring video footage of the Marshall Islands, executing 3D mapping projections and making other visual decisions
