Location, location, location: The Sound that Place Makes

Marc De Pape and Michael Trommer both employ a process of translation in their multidisciplinary, sound-centred practices. While De Pape’s “The Chime” translates urban movement into a cinematic score, Trommer’s “Transmissions from the Technological Sublime” translates a series of urban field recordings into brooding, nocturnal animation. In this session, De Pape and Trommer discuss how their approaches to sound and place both overlap and diverge, while attending to the aesthetic concerns of their non-visual media.

Location, location, location: Making Space for Media Art

In this session, Adrienne Crossman and Zach Pearl consider the perennial challenges of curating new media art, offering their perspectives as curators from within, and without, the institution. Time-based, sound-based, and technologically driven artworks bring with them a host of obstacles in traditional gallery settings. Rapid gentrification and the rising cost of space presents the added challenge of securing affordable exhibition venues. Crossman and Pearl draw from their experiences to bring forth examples of adaptable curatorial practice.
