Their magazine features refreshingly straight talk about art and artists’ projects. Short, sweet and eminently readable, they asked me to write a piece for their Rants & Raves section. the piece will only be up for two weeks.

Digit Media Festival call


I've been involved with this for a couple of years. It started out as a a film festival but I've been pushing to turn it into a new media festival. For the film festival you have to send in your video with a 25 dollar fee. There's also a call for new media proposals which is free. The cool events will be at the Roebling Bridge for sound art and Bethel Woods Art Center (the old woodstock hippie site). we're calling this Podstock.



Sound Art is everywhere these days. Peter Sinclair and his experimental soundlab Locus Sonus have a video up on the web called Audio Geo. I'm trying to get Locus Sonus over here for the Digit Festival in August. The grant forms are in and we are keeping our fingers crossed.

MTAA has a podcast blog called To Be Listened To...
