Week 8: As part of the PLATO Lecture Series, Ann Warde, Wednesday, February 26th from 11:30-1pm in the Recital Hall of the COM Building

Ann Warde is an experimental composer, sound artist, and independent scholar, and a
2019 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Music/Sound from The New York Foundation
for the Arts. Following her doctorate in music composition and ethnomusicology at the
University of Illinois, and a Mellon Fellowship in music at Cornell University, her
work with sound shifted, focusing for the next decade on applications of audio
technology to the analysis of whale sounds at Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology.
Subsequently, as a 2015-16 US-UK Fulbright Researcher at the University of York,
she worked on music and bioacoustics projects and developed interests in American
philosophy. Linking this philosophical inquiry to music led to her recent presentation at the Women in Pragmatism International Conference (Barcelona), and to her participation as co-convener and presenter at the Experience :: Music :: Experiment events sponsored by the Orpheus Institute, Ghent, Belgium. Her sound installation Hidden Encounters was featured as part of the 2019 Tone Deaf Festival in Kingston, Ontario, and last August she was an artist-in-residence with the European Interfaces project in Cyprus. zsonics.org
