Artist Residency Programs:
The Atlanta Sound Project – Georgia Tech and legendary audio engineer Young Guru present The Atlanta Sound Project by recording and sound engineer Finis White, known as KY. The project, described as “for Atlanta, by Atlanta” considers how different ambient sounds from different neighborhoods would fit in their own unique genre of music, and asks the question “What does the culture of a place sound like?”
Crowd Source - Choreographer and digital media artist Jonah Bokaer continues his two-year residency exploring and engaging the campus and community in the development and testing of a new smart phone app that maps crowd movement as inspiration for the artist, and information and engagement for the audience. The project is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
HandPicked - Grammy-winning jazz artist and Atlanta resident Earl Klugh is in the second year of a three-year residency in which he explores a hand-picked arc of jazz music. Throughout this time Klugh will work with K-12 partner schools and Georgia Tech music students, in addition to presenting a concert each season. Selected students will participate in professional on-stage experiences with his group.
