Electromagnetic Touch: Radios and Community – Editing in a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)
As part of the Found in Translation series funded by the PA Humanities and National Endowment for the Humanities, Fleisher Art Memorial and Asian Arts Initiative are proud to present Electromagnetic Touch: Radios and Community, a series of workshops organized by the Sound Museum Collective of Philadelphia. The Collective holds space to reconstruct our relationship to sounds by creating a platform for women, nonbinary, and trans sound artists and engineers through workshops, collaborative projects, and creative community partnerships. The seminar includes both online and in-person engagements, including a historical overview of radio history, hands-on experimentation with radio technologies, and developing radio stories through Queer perspectives.
Found in Translation is a free series of art history and critical theory workshops organized by Fleisher in partnership with several cultural institutions throughout Philadelphia. The series specifically focuses on centering BIPOC and Queer voices, reflecting a more inclusive view of the communities we work with. Found in Translation, aligned with Fleisher’s mission of making art more accessible through our education and community programs, brings these valuable perspectives to a broader public. All seminars will be provided with live Spanish interpretation.
