Davis and Gottschalk will share examples of sonic practice that deal with ecological issues. They will explore various approaches, including field recording, text scores, and technological interventions, in which art and science interact.

JENNIE GOTTSCHALK writes, composes, talks, listens, and transcribes. Experimental music is the most consistent focus of these actions. Some of the results can be found on soundexpanse.com, jenniegottschalk.com, and in Experimental Music since 1970 (Bloomsbury, 2016). She got her doctorate in composition from Northwestern University in 2008 and is based in Boston, Massachusetts.

D. EDWARD DAVIS is a composer whose work engages with the sounds of the environment, exploring processes, patterns, and systems inspired by nature. He holds composition degrees from Duke University, Brooklyn College, and Northwestern University. He is currently a Practitioner-in-Residence at the University of New Haven.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, administrated by the Mayor’s Office of Arts & Culture.
