Seth Cluett leads a workshop on acoustics from the perspective of developing sound works situated in the landscape. Beginning with a basic overview of what sound waves are and how they move, the workshop will focus on the implications of acoustics from an artistic perspective. No prior technical training is necessary for full participation. Email info@wavefarm.org to register for this free workshop.

American artist and composer Seth Cluett explores everyday actions at extreme magnification, examines minutae by amplifying impossible tasks, and explores the working of memory in forms that rethink the role of the senses in an increasingly technologized society. Creating work ranging from photography and drawing to installation, concert music, and critical writing, his “subtle...seductive, immersive” (Artforum) sound work has been characterized as “rigorously focused and full of detail” (e/i) and “dramatic, powerful, and at one with nature” (The Wire). The recipient of grants from Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Fund and Meet the Composer, his work has been presented internationally at venues such as The Whitney Museum, MoMA/PS1, Palais de Tokyo, GRM, and STEIM and is documented on Line, Sedimental, Notice, and Winds Measure recordings. In the fall of 2015 he joined the Music & Technology faculty at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.
