Andrew Chatfield writes in from the CFA to invite you to see a gallery exhibit by R. Luke Dubois:
Genre-defying composer, artist, and performer R. Luke DuBois utilizes data to create maps, scores, and videos that explore subjects including the Iraq War and the census; and that raise questions of artistic agency, privacy, and fair use. Organized as a database of his projects and concerns, the exhibition “R. Luke DuBois: In Real Time” is the first major gallery presentation of his work, and will include recent and commissioned pieces that take as their basis real-time data flows, topical statistics, and contemporary media footage. Co-sponsored by Wesleyan’s Department of Art and Art History, Department of Government, Digital and Computational Knowledge Initiative, Information Technology Services, the Office of Academic Affairs, and the Quantitative Analysis Center.
Closed: Wednesday, November 25 through Monday, November 30, 2015

Place: Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, Main Gallery, 283 Washington Terrace, Middletown

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
This little tidbit from the Sound Co-op:

Date: Tomorrow, February 3rd
Holly Everett ’15 writes in with an amazing opportunity to take part in a workshop with and experience a conceptual project by deaf sound artist and composer Christine Sun Kim. Just looking at the event’s sponsors (Sign House and the Music Department, among many others), you can tell that this is not something you’ll want to miss:
This Saturday join us for a two part event featuring Christine Sun Kim, a deaf sound artist and composer. Miss Kim investigates the visual manifestations of sound as an expression of her agency and ownership of it. In this new work, Self Notary Public, Christine presents “a conceptual attempt to legitimatize [her] presence through vocalizing.”
Workshop: 12 pm 41 Wyllys Room 114. Bring your brunch and your
Performance: 8 pm World Music Hall. FREE. Open to the public.
