Touch Tones, TV’s, and Time—An Elegy for Debased Media

An exciting invitation to an upcoming performance:

“Touch Tones, TV’s, and Time: An Elegy for Debased Media” is an evening length work by University Professor of Music Ronald Kuivila for singing and speaking voices, live electronics, and various media past their prime. Enumeration and iteration abound in an exploration of the extent to which a listener (human or otherwise) can be trained to be entranced by the entrance of entrainment. The heterophonic kabelsalat that results includes the ring tones, dial tones, and busy signals of the world’s land lines, the Wesleyan carillon in effigy, an electro-ideological party line and an ever-present chorus lurking in a state of auditory denial.

Date: Tuesday, February 25th – tomorrow!
Time: 8:00 PM
Place: Beckham Hall
Cost: FREE!

New Eco-Facilitators Program in the fall of 2014!

From Rachael Metz ’16:

The Wesleyan Sustainability Office is launching the new Eco Facilitators program in Fall 2014. Eco Facilitators are peer-to-peer sustainability educators who promote energy and water conservation, waste reduction, and other sustainable habits on campus. EFs will enroll in a semester-long seminar course designed to equip them with the tools to promote these behavior changes. EF’s will work with first-year students and Res Life to serve as a resource on how to adopt sustainable lifestyles. Working as an Eco Facilitator is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills and learn how to raise Wesleyan’s environmental consciousness and build a sustainable campus culture. Please come to our first information session next week! Snacks will be provided.

More information is available here.

Date: Tuesday, February 25
Time: 7:30 – 8:30 P.M.
