Beanblossom’s projects are concerned with uses of tone, texture, and resonance, and explore emotional and cultural assignments attached to the perception of sounds. She is interested in the decision-making processes (or methods and systems) artists use for their compositions, and utilizes both intuition and chance operation in her own.  Her live performance includes tape loops, live feedback, voice, and synthesis. 

 Kin Lam Lam is an artist, percussionist, and composer who seeks to explore the intersections of music, electronics, and visual media. Kin Lam explores the world with a beginner’s mind and tries to bring in new possibilities to the things that we encounter every day. Having a passion in DIY aesthetic, Kin Lam enjoys building his own tools as well as discovering strange sounds using handmade instrument and electronics. His practice also includes improvisation, compositions, and fielding recording. Recently, he is been developing an interactive, animated notation system to explore the relationship between notational systems and interpretations as well as to create a new performance experience. 

The Sound Department Colloquium Series is a weekly series of presentations by the department's visiting artists and scholars, faculty, graduate students and invited guests.
