Ear to Ear: Collective Transmission
Join Other Desert Radio founders Caroline Partamian and Ethan Primason to examine, explore, and converse about community, transmission, and distance. This workshop will dive into the history of transmission-based projects to glean how the medium is rife for community building and experimental communication.
Using these examples as a guide, participants are invited to intentionally interact with their space to engage deeper with an invisible and anonymous audience who will be transported by their work.
Date: This one-time workshop meets on Tuesday, June 30 from 6:30-8:30PM EST.
Audience: Open to all.
Materials: Participants will need a computer with internet access and some type of audio recording device, which could be a phone or a field recorder.
Caroline Partamian is a sound and visual artist influenced by her training in dance. She works closely with the concept of abreaction —the extraction of dormant memory stored within a muscle, resurfaced through physical movement, of which an individual was previously unaware; these memories span the spectrum and can take many forms—traumatic, erotic, comforting, etc. By focusing on the process rather than anticipated result, her work encourages what can be revealed when one becomes conscious of their kinetic movement in the process of creation. She has shown work at Marfa Open, Wassaic Project, Otion Front, Flux Factory, Anthology Film Archives, Babycastles, Compound Yucca Valley, and more.
Ethan Primason is a sound artist, recording engineer, and musician. His works and practices explore the multisensory context and placeness of audio. His works have been shown at Pioneer Works, Sargent’s Daughters, Marinaro Gallery, Zaha Hadid 520 W 28th street, Outpost Artist Resources, Wassaic Project, Clocktower Radio, Marfa Open, WGXC Wavefarm, and BoxoPROJECTS.
