I am honored to be one of two SAIC faculty awarded a one-month international summer artist’s residency with a studio and living quarters at AIR Krems on the Danube River. Located in the Kunstquartier of Krems, these facilities are provided through the support of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in an exchange with a consortium of cultural institutions referred to collectively as the Kunstmeile Krems. Krems and the Wachau region of Austria is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Visit my AIR Krems profile here.

Conversation with Sound and Eco Design Students
Listen to “SoundTent At Camp Sherwin” and my curated set of works for the radioCona:0.2425 soundart exhibition from Ljubljana, rebroadcast on WGXC 90.7-FM Wave Farm Radio, New York.
August 1 – 5, 2016 every night 12.00 – 6.00 (UTC/GMT- 4)
About the exhibition:
This edition of radioCona:0.2425 aims at reflecting and shifting precisely this ‘unperceived’ remainder, making a leap to move from the unit of time to the notion of space, toward perceiving space, toward perceiving, capturing, and composing sounds and soundscapes, and ultimately toward creating autonomous narratives.
Using archaic, contemporary, and invented instruments, artist Aurelio leads an immersive and participatory sonic ceremony recalling the journeys taken by objects featured in Vanishing Beauty: Asian Jewelry and Ritual Objects from the Barbara and David Kipper Collection.
About the Artist:
Through his extensive travels and studies all around the world, Aurelio has become a noted pioneer in the development and manufacture of innovative musical instruments, whether it be simple inviting instruments for beginners, or instruments specially designed for use in sound healing. He is the Creative Director of SVARAM Musical Instruments, Vocational Training and Research Station.

I curated a selection of works by five artists for the radioCona 0.2425 FM soundart exhibition broadcast and streaming February 28 – March 3, 2016 after nautical twilight 6:16 PM on 88.8MHz FM and live streaming on www.radiocona.si Ljubljana.
This edition of the annual exhibition is dedicated to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, focusing on the dimension of nighttime radio transmission and the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from daytime rhythms.
In addition, my own “SoundTent At Camp Sherwin” was selected by one of the other curators.
My Radius Episode 63, “SoundTent at Camp Sherwin” (2015) was among the works featured in EXTREME WEATHER, an exhibition at Murmur Gallery, Atlanta, from December 3 – 28, 2015, curated by Meredith Kooi.
I recently helped students in Jesse Seay’s Sound Art Electronics class use piezo disc contact microphones to build amplified sound sculptures and instruments for public interaction at The Arcade, an exhibition space at Columbia College Chicago. Their handmade electroacoustic creations were very fun and effective. The show runs for one month and closes May 2, 2014.
In addition to piezo disc contact microphones, Jesse’s students made many simple light-sensitive oscillators grouped together in a wonderful installation room within the gallery, and in one playful—and soundful—sculptural object.
On Thursday June 20 I will present in a seminar on “Sound, Silence and Acoustic Ecology.” This is an invitation-only event held in conjunction with the Silence Exhibition, curated by Alex van Oss. The exhibition is open to the public at the Embassy of Finland on June 29-30 and July 13-14, from 11 AM to 4 PM.Embassy of Finland

Friday, February 17, 2012 from 7PM-10PM the Zhou B Arts Center
Sound MFA students Jonny Farrow and Ethan Rose are the featured artists in Make Sound, curated by Eric Leonardson, Julia A. Miller, and Christopher Preissing. The Zhou B Arts Center hosts its Third Friday opening with the Wet Paint exhibition of 49 emerging artists selected from MFA painting programs across the US. Jonny Farrow will perform “Feed3” at 9PM-10PM. Feed3+ is an audio/visual improvisation utilizing a no-input feedback system that generates the audio, and a Jitter-manipulated video feedback system that generates the visuals. The visuals create an instant score for the audio performance. Feed3+ is the sum of three interdependent feedback loops: the audio, the video, and the performer’s reading and manipulation of the score.
Opening Friday, January 20, 7:00 to 10:00 pm

Make Sound 2012 is a partner exhibition to the National Wet Paint Exhibition 2012, and is organized in a similar fashion. MFA candidates and recent MFA recipients in sound art, installation, and performance will be honored and exhibited alongside those in Wet Paint.
Now in its first year, Make Sound 2012 focuses on Chicago-based artists, expanding to national submission-based curatorial efforts in the future.

Ethan Rose, Movements
Movements consists of a series of individually treated, electrically-powered music boxes that use the gallery wall as a resonating body. Each individual music box was physically altered by selectively bending back tines, resulting in a melodic reduction of the original composition. The altered boxes are then grouped and controlled by timers that intermittently activate different sections of the piece in order to engage a constantly shifting non-linear auditory experience.
