Ben Miller’s estimable achievements in the Detroit/Ann Arbor post-punk scene, and current performance with his self-deconstructed multi-phonic guitar promises to fill out the sonic splendor of this evening.

Flying Monks for Rika Lin Version 2

Following last April’s performance of Quantum Monk II at Link’s Hall, choreographer, Rika Lin and I have been working a new variation for live performance.

Posted by Fujima Yoshinojo on Wednesday, April 26, 2017

 
“Flying Monks” is the name Rika chose for the set of suspended amplified oscillators I built last year for that performance that also also featured my live performance with the Springboard. While work-shopping the piece we came up with the idea by using sound design and music as an integral part of the choreography.

Upcoming in 2018

As spring semester begins at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), where I teach, I eagerly embark on a sabbatical term to focus my own projects. Here are some of the events and travels I look forward to:

  • Starting January 29, I’m honored to be invited back to the artists’ retreat at Ragdale, until February 23.
  • On February 24, I join SAIC Professor Linda Keane and students from her Eco Design course at SAIC to give river ecology workshops for the Chicago River Student Congress 2018 at Bryn Mawr High School, a Chicago Public School.
  • A tribute for my friend Nigel Frayne, who passed away on January 8, 2018, was posted the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE) News. He was a great friend and supporter of the WFAE, and for me personally, as its president. Please stay tuned we as we remember and honor his many achievements and quiet gifts through the year.

I invite you to subscribe and read past issues of my newsletter.

Best wishes for a healthy and productive 2018.

Sincerely Yours,
Eric
