Wave Farm News: January 2014

2014 promises to be an exciting year for Wave Farm. Last month, we were pleased to announce that the Wave Farm Residency Program received support from the National Endowment for the Arts http://www.autodidiermarie.com/2018/02/02/where-to-buy-teavana-green-tea/ . Today, we are thrilled to announce 2014 support from the New York State Council on the Arts for a unique Wave Farm facilities upgrade, as well as support for two individual artist projects via fiscal sponsorship: LoVid’s “iParade,” and Hans Tammen’s “Apheresis – for large electronic ensemble.”

The facilities award will support fifty percent of the cost to expand transmission technology resources for the Wave Farm Residency Program, including a site-specific AM radio station, and installation of expanded WiFi and electrical connection points, as well as the acquisition of a professional radio console to expand the usability of Wave Farm’s WGXC Acra studio. Tune into WGXC 90.7-FM on the evening of January 18 for the premiere live broadcast from Future-Past Studios in Hudson, NY.
