Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance offers new certificate program, deadline Feb. 1, 2011

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few years, we have noticed a gap in training for performing arts professionals. There are many masters programs and other professional training programs for visual arts curators, but we could find nothing comparable in the performing arts fields. In talking to colleagues, we realized that there was a real need for a program that addressed the ways in which performance is curated and produced today.

In 2010, in partnership with Danspace Project in New York, we founded the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (ICPP) at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. The ICPP is now accepting applications for a low-residency professional certificate program in 2011-2012.

May I ask you for a recollection? / call for sound memories

Dear People,

I am a young sound artist from Belgium, and I'm currently building a new installation called Soundtracks.

And to build the installation, I need your help. The idea behind soundtracks is to build an archive of memories of sound. Memories of sounds that were important to you, that struck you or stayed with you. Soundtracks wants to research which kind of sounds get remembered, and how they are remembered. Can we hear those sounds again in our heads, or can we only remember the circumstances of the situation; the outlines, the edges of the sound?

And that's why I would like to ask you to take a moment and try to find your recollection of a sound, a sound that was important to you.
