Aaron Dilloway

In-residence: October 5 - 14, 2018
Live Broadcast: Saturday, October 13, 2018, 4 - 6 p.m.
WGXC 90.7-FM, or wavefarm.org/listen

"Everyone Eats Garbage" is a radio work informed by a large archive of obsolete sound effects tape carts that were once used by KXLU 88.9-FM in Los Angeles. Dilloway extends the life of these abandoned and outdated radio artifacts by cutting, splicing, looping, and manipulating them into a new and substantial work for broadcast.

Aaron Dilloway is a celebrated improviser and composer who works with 1/4" tape loops in 8-track cartridges as well as other discarded electronic equipment. In his performance-based practice, he manipulates magnetic tape in real-time by feeding the loops sounds from his body, everyday objects, electronic sources, prepared tapes, as well as the occasional actual instrument. https://aarondilloway.bandcamp.com

2019 Media Arts Assistance Fund Guidelines and Application Calendar Coming Soon!

The Media Arts Assistance Fund is being revised to better serve the New York State Art & Technology community. Central to this process are the recent NYSCA EMF Media Arts Assistance Fund Surveys, which Wave Farm distributed to past grantees last month. We received an impressive rate of response. Thank you! Survey responses will play an important role as we refine MAAF guidelines in advance of the 2019 application calendar, both for New York State media artists, and organizational and professional development support.

The 2019 MAAF Guidelines will be published late October/early November, and we encourage all New York State media artists and media arts organizations to plan accordingly.

The New York State Council on the Arts in Partnership with Wave Farm: Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) supports electronic media and film organizations, as well as individual artists, in all regions of New York State. The Fund provides unique and critical support with a focus on sustainability and public engagement. MAAF is made possible through a regrant from the NYSCA Electronic Media and Film program. Please visit wavefarm.org/mag for more information and direct all questions to info@wavefarm.org.


Wave Farm programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the National Endowment for the Arts; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Greene County Legislature through the County Initiative Program, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts; the Alexander and Marjorie Hover Foundation; the Foundation for Contemporary Arts; the T. Backer Fund; the Joseph Family Charitable Trust; and hundreds of other generous individual donors.
