Thursday, Oct 29, 2pm – 4pm – Making Music With Animal Recordings – David Rothenberg will teach us how to transform digitized animal vocalizations into electronic music for humans to enjoy. Meet us in the Department of Art computer lab in Hopkins Hall, room 180. He will be using audio samples from the Borror Lab of Bioacoustics and manipulating them with the software Ableton Live and Amadeus, which we have installed on the lab computers temporarily. Please share with your students and friends who have an interest in this. It will be first come, first served. We have 20 seats in the computer lab.

FRIDAY – closing reception & performances of Interventions at the Pearl Conrad Gallery in Mansfield, OH:
The Fuse Factory’s annual juried exhibition proudly presents technology-based new media and digital arts, along with a series of hand-on art workshops and lectures. The exhibition runs from Friday, September 28 2015 to October 30 2015 at the Pearl Conard Art Gallery, located on The Ohio State University at Mansfield campus. The exhibition’s closing reception is Friday, October 30 2015 at the Pearl Conard Art Gallery from 7-9pm.
Our 2015 exhibition explores the theme of INTERVENTIONS featuring artists’ works that examine how scientific methodology intervenes between art and science; how art contributes to scientific research; how technological interventions create artistic spectacles within the intersection of art and technology; the aesthetic discourses between the natural and the technological/”unnatural”; and the use of technological interventions in which organic objects/beings integrate with inorganic mechanical systems and interspecies, to name a few.http://fuse2015.thefusefactory.org/
