I am thrilled and so grateful to be awarded to be the recipient of the 2014 Edes Prize out of the University of Chicago, my alma mater.
This grant makes my work possible! From July 2014-15, I will be creating an original performance piece on Ora Nichols, the pioneer of modern sound effects.
A brief article on the prize itself and the nature of the project can be found on UChicago Arts online.
On this site, I will be documenting the research, process and creation of the piece.
Stay tuned-- I will be including history, images and content on Ora Nichols, early radio and sound effects shortly!
