Join us in singing and playing folk songs! We’ll learn some Woody Guthrie songs and some tunes from “The American Songbag” (compiled by Carl Sandburg). Feel free to bring instruments and perhaps a folk song to teach the group! This repeating event is open to all levels, no experience required.
Alex Wand is a Grammy Award-winning musician and composer based in Los Angeles. He performs as a solo artist and with the groups Desert Magic and The Partch Ensemble. He often collaborates with filmmakers, dancers, and coders, to create music scores that involve his interests in just intonation, sonification, folk music, and sound art. Originally from Detroit, he studied at the University of Michigan and received an MFA in music composition from CalArts. For his Camera Obscura residency project, he is exploring the sonification of kinetic information from ocean waves as a part of his broader study of the range of sounds that can be drawn from the environment.
