On International Dawn Chorus Day I am inviting local citizens to join me at the shoreline of Lake Michigan at 5:00-6:00 a.m. Saturday, May 2. My “SoundTent” will be located on the beach one block east of Sheridan Road, 20 paces past 1205 W Sherwin Avenue, in Chicago.
In October 2014 Lindsey French and I were awarded our request to team-teach a proposed course called Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, for the 2015-16 academic year. Please visit our course blog: https://ecosensingsoundscape.wordpress.com/
Our course will be offered in the Fall 2015 term and cross-listed with the school’s departments of Art and Technology Studies and Sound.
Lindsey French is a Chicago-based artist and educator. Engaging in gestures of communication with landscapes and the nonhuman, her work spans a variety of media including video, performance, audio sculpture, and generative literature. Find more info on her website.
The School provides opportunities for its faculty from different departments to co-teach expanded curricular offerings, and the committee thanks you both for your contributions as colleagues and valued members of the School community.
