I will be the guest critic, lecturer and workshop leader for the April residency at the Vermont College for the Arts MFA in Graphic Design Program. The program “allows students to earn a 60-credit degree over a period of two years through a combination of weeklong, campus-based residencies followed by six-month semesters of student centered study, supported and guided by faculty advisors and peers.” My lecture will be the presentation “Singing the Surface,” and the workshop, “Music for Metaphors,” will lead students to the crafting of a 10–12 track design album, through processes inspired by and taken from contemporary popular music production. In advance of my visit, the program’s blog, Perpetual Beta, featured an interview with me.
