Wave Farm Works in Progress Workshop with Samuel Hertz & Carmelo Pampillonio

This workshop, led by Wave Farm residents Samuel Hertz and Carmelo Pampillonio, will expand on the duo’s transmission research and experiments with their Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) radio communications relay, which bounces and receives signals off the Moon. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of their research through experiential text-scores, listening sessions with radio technologies, and hands-on activities that will prompt conversations about sensing, relating, and reflecting.

This event will take place off-site at Governors Island, Nolan Park 8B, which is accessible via ferry from Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Price: Free ($10 Suggested Donation)

Audience: Open to all.

Materials: Materials provided.

Samuel Hertz and Carmelo Pampillonio are sound artists and researchers who synthesize documentary practices of geophysical and atmospheric forces with the artistic practices of composition, transmission, and installation. Approaching ways in which we can develop notions of affect and ecological entanglement, their work explores complex interactions between non/human timescales, geophysical phenomenology, and sonic materialities.

Wave Farm is a non-profit arts organization driven by experimentation with broadcast media and the airwaves. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form. Major activities include the Wave Farm Artist Residency Program, Transmission Art Archive, WGXC 90.7-FM, and the Media Arts Assistance Fund in partnership with NYSCA EMF.
