School of Experimental Work: Fuzzy Dicers & Hex Inverter Oscillators | Will Eriksson
Circuit Building Workshop.
Will Eriksson studied under Nic Collins, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Having turned his focus from the sculptural to the aural he focused on developing interactive systems and generative musical programs. Concrete (not to be confused with concrète ) electronic compositions are a main fixture of his practice as well.
The School of Experimental Work: Audio-Visual series is a series of workshops, lectures, meditations and/or performances. Artists are invited to conduct sessions which highlight interdisciplinarity, collaboration, and experimentation. All sessions are open to the public, with the intended audience being emerging artists who can not afford other means of arts education. This intensive “school” will focus on exploring ideas and artistic practices surrounding the use of various forms of technology in the arts and will feature workshops on, but not limited to the following: animation, sound art, and other forms of digital art making.
The School of Experimental Work is organized by Charisse Pearlina Weston, co-organized and hosted by Alabama Song Founder Gabriel Martinez, and made possible through funds from the 2014 charge//practicum grant and the Santo Foundation.
