February 13, 5pm
Free and open to all
Join Skidmore Professor Adam Tinkle on Wednesday, February 13, at 5:00 pm, for SoundMind #15 featuring Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect. Professor Tinkle will lead a sonic meditation with the ensemble.
SoundMind is a workshop that combines meditation, sensory awareness, and aesthetic activation of the breath, body, and voice. Alone, in pairs, and as a group, participants will explore resonance and vibration through touching, listening, and collaborative creation. Developed and led by Skidmore Professor Adam Tinkle, SoundMind is open to all, and will take place in Tel_, the artist-designed installation on the mezzanine.
Adam Tinkle is the Director of the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Media and Film Studies at Skidmore, where he creates, teaches and writes about music, sound, media and performance. In 2010, he co-founded the Universal Language Orchestra, a group of elementary-aged novice musicians that composed, improvised, and built their own instruments. He subsequently created several similarly path-breaking arts education programs across San Diego County, where his collaborations with his students and his audience-participatory works were shown at the Birch Aquarium, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, San Diego Museum of Art, Old Globe Theatre, and Institute of Perception. His award-winning solo performance A Mess of Things merges radio documentary with songs and video art. In May 2014 his interactive sound sculpture the Shantytown Scrapblaster was permanently installed at the Media Arts Center San Diego.
