Sound Art Festival Next Week

Next week, the AMEE’s (Asociación de Música Electroacústica y Arte Sonoro de España) sound art festival begins in NYC!

The festival opens March 16 with a symposium and concert at the Graduate Center. At 6 pm, Foundation director Antoni Pizà, Daniel Neumann (artist), Jaime Oliver (NYU Waverly Lab), Ferrer-Molina (AMEE, president), and  Douglas E. Geers will discuss “The Challenges of Transatlantic Sound Art.”

A concert, with performances by Neumann, Oliver, and Ferrer-Molina, and Pau Vila will follow the discussion at 7 pm.

Pizà, apart from being the director of the Foundation, helped to organize Sound v. Sense: Intersection, a sound art installation at the Instituto Cervantes, and contributed essays and material to an upcoming Sound Art exhibition at the Fundación Juan March in Madrid. Oliver is a professor of composition at NYU and co-directs the Waverly Labs for Computing and Music. Geers is co-director of Brooklyn College’s Center for Computer Music.

This event is free. It will be held at the Graduate Center’s Proshansky Auditorium.

The festival will conclude March 18th at Roulette at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 ($10 student/senior).

(A previous version of this post listed the location of the March 18th concert as the Fridman Gallery; the venue has since changed.)
