On Saturday, March 30 I was among the artists performing and presenting installations for Soundfest at Amherst College. Katharine Duke’s review was published on Wednesday, April 3rd, with photos by Cole Morgan and Rob Mattson, including an audio excerpt of my piece, “Similaria” here: https://www.amherst.edu/aboutamherst/news/campusbuzz/node/462685

Artists participating in Soundfest included faculty and alumni of Amherst College, local artists, and Copeland Fellows like myself, a part of the 2012–13 Copeland Colloquium: “Art in Place / the Place of Art.”

Amherst College Copeland Colloquia on Art in Place / the Place of Art

ArtinPlacePosterFallFinalBeginning in January I will be an artist-in-residence at Amherst College. I was selected by faculty at Amherst College to be a Copeland Fellow in their colloquium on “Art in Place/the Place of Art.” The Copeland Fellows for the spring semester also include saxophonist Matana Roberts, filmmaker Catherine Masud, and choreographer Idan Cohen.

The Copeland Colloquium was established in 1971 by Morris A. Copeland, Class of 1917, and his wife, Mary, with the intent “to bring together people of diverse backgrounds and different perspectives to engage with faculty and students at Amherst College in a way designed to promote the cross-fertilization of ideas.” The Copeland Fellows, who often participate in colloquia and other programming on campus, bring to the College a variety of perspectives and interests, enriching the Amherst community.
