The Sound Department Colloquium Series is a series of presentations by the department's visiting artists and scholars, faculty, graduate students and invited guests. The presentation on September 23 will feature current Sound Department graduate students PAige NAylor and DJ Malinowski.
Paige Naylor is an MFA candidate in the Sound Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago specializing in voice and electronics. Her work exists between the popular and experimental, between sound and performance art. She is currently interested in self-regulating systems, participatory performance, installation, real-time song de/reconstruction, generative songwriting techniques, auditory illusions and movement & text scores. She holds a certificate in Deep Listening and is composer-performer & co-producer of the experimental pop opera The Near Misses.
DJ Malinowski explores sonically articulated spaces of surfaces, material-immaterial interfaces, rhythms of sub-identities, and use of cognitive and digital technologies to experimentally process objects, through the mediums of sound sculpture, digital collage, performance, and writing. They challenge kyriarchy. Current obsessions include jet engines and self as archive.
