LECTURE: The Sonification of the Japanese Garden

Michael Fowler - LECTURE - Georgia State University, College of Arts and Sciences Event Center, 25 Park Place, room 223.

Berlin-based sound artist, performer, and researcher Dr. Michael D. Fowler has used Cage’s unconventional approach as a jumping off point for his own soundscape work.  In his book Sound Worlds of Japanese Gardens (Cultural and Media Studies, 2014), Fowler documented how he used his research of Japanese gardens to create large-scale sound installations and liver performances in venues throughout Japan, China, Australia, and Germany.

Bent Frequency and Fowler will collaborate on a new, Atlanta-specific concert based on one of the works discussed in Fowler’s book, Sesshutei as Spatial Model.
