@ Squeaky Wheel
Free and open to the general public
In conjunction with [Noo Phone in the Black Space]: or How to Avoid Roaming Charges, Squeaky Wheel presents an artist talk by Andrew Blanton (San Jose, California). A percussionist, media artist, and educator, Blanton’s work is fundamentally transdisciplinary combining classical percussion, new media art, and creative coding to create real-time sonic and visual instruments. Andrew received a bachelor’s in percussion performance from the University of Denver (2008) where he attended on a partial scholarship studying with John Kenzie and a Master of Fine Art in New Media Art from the University of North Texas (2013) where he attended on a full scholarship studying principally with David Stout and Jenny Vogel. Andrew has performed and presented his work around the world. His work has been shown in the Google Cultural Lab in Paris, The University of Brasilia, PUC-Rio, OT301 Amsterdam, and McGill University Montreal as a part of the Transplanted Roots Percussion Symposium among many other venues.
