Work with international sound sculptor Bill Fontana
Afshan Ahmed | January 7, 2014
International sound artist Bill Fontana will be giving a lecture at the New York Abu Dhabi Campus on January 15.
His playlist includes sounds captured from within the London Millennium Foot Bridge, an Australian rainforest and very soon even those from the Large Hadron Collider.
The American sound sculptor will discuss sound art and his journey around the world making musical instruments out of man-made structures and collecting sounds from the environment.
The free to attend session will cover the evolution of technology, its role in the recording and dissemination of sound and shifting perceptions of the world around us.
Fontana will also be gathering sounds in the Emirates for a commissioned piece during the visit, which will be exhibited during the Abu Dhabi Festival in March.
Attendees will have an opportunity to apply for the Abu Dhabi Festival Visual Arts Award and winners will work with Fontana to develop their own sound sculpture which will be showcased at the World Premiere exhibition.
The lecture will take place at the Multipurpose Room at New York University at 12pm.
Seats are limited and can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
