Hyphenated American: Diversity Enriches!

Hyphenated American: Diversity Enriches!
Friday, April 28 from 7 – 9:30 PM
Cine Lab, 234 W. Hancock Ave.

www.facebook.com/HA.DIVERSITY/

Hyphenated American is back this year with the theme: Diversity Enriches! Artists of a variety of cultures and backgrounds are coming together for a night of spoken word, new compositions, visual art and dance. Come on out for this free show and enjoy the beauty of diversity. We’ll follow the show up with a safe discussion about the importance of diversity and what inclusivity looks like in our daily lives. Be on the lookout for news about the artists involved.

Last year’s Hyphenated American project, supported by an Idea Lab Mini-Grant, was a great success featuring visual art, poetry, new music compositions, and guest lecturers who came together for a show focused on Latinos in the U.S. This April, Hyphenated American is returning with a broader focus to amplify the voices of immigrants, refugees, and hyphenated Americans of every culture.

Supported in part by the UGA Hispanic Student Association and Ideas for Creative Exploration.

Hodgson Wind Ensemble Concert (4/4)

Performance: Hodgson Wind Ensemble
Tuesday, April 4 at 8 PM
UGA Performing Arts Center, Hodgson Concert Hall

music.uga.edu/news-and-events/hodgson-wind-ensemble’s-season-finale-celebrates-jazz-adventurous-music-making

The premier wind ensemble of the UGA Hugh Hodgson School of Music will perform works from ICE Mini-Grant recipient Cody Brookshire, ICE Advisory Board member Professor Peter Lane, Ron Nelson, Augusta Read Thomas, Mike Titlebaum and Michael Torke in a concert titled “All That Jazz.” Tickets are available at pac.uga.edu or the PAC box office for $12 or $6 with a UGA student ID.

Assistant professor of composition Peter Van Zandt Lane’s Beacons opens the second half of the program. “It is incredible,” says Cynthia Johnston Turner, Hodgson Wind Ensemble director. “There is no composer out there today, in my view, that explores color in more innovative ways than our own Peter Lane.”

Cody Brookshire, Richard Saney, Nick Saney, and Jake Reeves were awarded a 2015 ICE Mini-Grant to create technology allowing for the synchronized streaming of different audio tracks to web-enabled devices for immersive live music, called “SynkroTakt.” Last December, Lineage Percussion premiered Triple Helix, a new work for marimba trio utilizing SynkroTakt to stream click tracks of different tempi to each player. More recently, the Hodgson Wind Ensemble took Brookshire’s Honeycomb on a short tour, culminating in a performance at the national conference of the Concert Band Director’s National Association in Kansas City, Missouri. Future implementations of the technology by Brookshire include a performance at the Electrobrass II Conference in April, the New York City Electronic Music Festival in July, and composing a piece in residence at Avaloch Farms Music Institute in October. The SynkroTakt team is aiming for an end-of-July public release of the technology. Anyone interested in knowing more about the technology may visit www.SynkroTakt.com.

Call for Participation: Hyphenated American

Call for Participation: Hyphenated American
Deadline: March 28

Last year’s Hyphenated American project, supported by an Idea Lab Mini-Grant, was a great success featuring visual art, poetry, new music compositions, and guest lecturers who came together for a show focused on Latinos in the U.S. This April, Hyphenated American is returning with a broader focus to amplify the voices of immigrants, refugees, and hyphenated Americans of every culture. If you are an ally, we want to hear from you too!

What are we looking for? Creative responses to the theme “Diversity enriches the U.S.” Submissions can be in any of the arts including dance, visual art, film, music, and poetry! As a Hyphenated American you have a unique voice and a unique message. Share it in a show that unites people in an increasingly divisive climate.

Send a sample or description of your project idea by March 28 to Monique Osorio: aosorio1@uga.edu

Oh and by the way, what is a hyphenated American? Well, you know.. Latin-American, Arab- American, Muslim-American, African-American, to name a few, but you get the idea.

Daylighting the Watersheds Design Competition

Daylighting the Watersheds UGA Design Competition
Deadline: October 14
Two $1,000 prizes

Download application: watershed.uga.edu/daylighting.pdf
watershed.uga.edu

Student teams are invited to participate in the Daylighting the Watersheds design competition to raise awareness about streams that flow through the UGA campus and to support the mission of Watershed UGA by creating a community ethic for the restoration of campus streams. Two projects will be selected to receive prizes of $1,000 each.

Each proposal should feature designs for a project to be installed in one of the following locations:

Tanyard Creek Watershed Site adjacent to Tate Center and Bolton Dining Commons near the intersection of Baxter Street and S. Lumpkin Street

Lilly Branch Watershed Site adjacent to Joe Frank Harris Commons and the Lamar Dodd School of Art near Carlton Street and River Road

Selection criteria:

Merit project raises awareness about campus watersheds

Innovation project features new ideas

Feasibility proposal materials consider costs, sustainability, and campus standards

Collaboration proposal materials reflect teamwork and interdisciplinary activity

Presentation proposal materials communicate effectively

Each project team must include at least two UGA students. Watershed UGA encourages teams with participants from more than one discipline or academic department, including students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. Multiple applications are permitted.

Since the founding of UGA in 1785, many natural features of campus watersheds have been steadily altered and relegated to obscurity. Tanyard Creek and Lilly Branch, both tributaries of the North Oconee River, are the most prominent streams that run through campus. Daylighting the Watersheds offers an opportunity to explore the history and significance of two streams that were once part of the daily lives of students, but now lack visibility and recreational benefit.

Watershed UGA facilitates the use of our campus as a living laboratory to advance sustainability and environmental stewardship through teaching, research, service, and university operations. The Daylighting the Watersheds design competition is generously supported by a grant from the Ray C. Anderson Foundation.

ICE Project Featured in Hugh Hodgson School of Music Convocation

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 8.38.16 AM

Opening convocation ceremonies at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music included a live demonstration and performance of new technology developed with the support of ICE. An ensemble of twenty musicians conducted by UGA Director of Bands Dr. Cynthia Johnston Turner, along with the mobile phones of 250 audience members, performed a composition by DMA candidate Cody Brookshire.

Brookshire, in collaboration with Nicholas Saney (Computer Science, Linguistics), Richard Saney (Computer Science, Music), and Jake Reeves (Mathematics, Music) received a 2015-2016 mini-grant to develop technology that enables electronic devices to be synchronized, solving a major latency challenge of networked electo-acoustic performance.

Following the successful development and performance, the team is exploring ways to make the technology available to more artists. Visit synkrotakt.com for more information and a video demo.
