If you’re in the Boston area, you might like this show about art, technology, and spiritualism. My microradio sound art piece “Songs from the Portuguese” is in it. The opening reception is Friday, Jan 28.
It’s almost time for instrument-a-day month again, and I’m celebrating by doing a bunch of instrument-making workshops at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn. First up on Saturday February 5 (1-4pm) is Junk Electric Guitars: make a primitive–but loud!–electric guitar. Here’s video from a previous workshop:
