Ear to Ear: Collective Transmission

When: Jun 30, 2020 6:30-8:30 pm

Where: THIS CLASS WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. ATTENDEES WILL BE SENT A LINK UPON REGISTRATION.

Join Other Desert Radio founders Caroline Partamian and Ethan Primason to examine, explore, and converse about community, transmission, and distance. This workshop will dive into the history of transmission-based projects to glean how the medium is rife for community building and experimental communication. Using these examples as a guide, participants are invited to intentionally interact with their space to engage deeper with an invisible and anonymous audience who will be transported by their work. Date: This one-time workshop meets on Tuesday, June 30 from 6:30-8:30PM EST. Audience: Open to all. Materials: Participants will need a computer with internet access and some type of audio recording device, which could be a phone or a field recorder. Caroline Partamian is a sound and visual artist influenced by her training in dance. She works closely with the concept of abreaction —the extraction of dormant memory stored within a muscle, resurfaced through physical movement, of which an individual was previously unaware; these memories span the spectrum and can take many forms—traumatic, erotic, comforting, etc. By focusing on the process rather than anticipated result, her work encourages what can be revealed when one becomes conscious of their kinetic movement in the process of creation. She has shown work at Marfa Open, Wassaic Project, Otion Front, Flux Factory, Anthology Film Archives, Babycastles, Compound Yucca Valley, and more. Ethan Primason is a sound artist, recording engineer, and musician. His works and practices explore the multisensory context and placeness of audio. His works have been shown at Pioneer Works, Sargent’s Daughters, Marinaro Gallery, Zaha Hadid 520 W 28th street, Outpost Artist Resources, Wassaic Project, Clocktower Radio, Marfa Open, WGXC Wavefarm, and BoxoPROJECTS. Please note, this online workshop will begin promptly at the listed start time. In order to ensure the quality of instruction for all participants, late entry will not be permitted.

Coronavirus Resource: Online Connectivity and Learning

When: Monday, March 16, 2020

 

Hello Families,  NYC just announced DOE Schools will close this week. Here are resources on how to get connected for families without WIFI, and resources to help with online learning and social connection. We practiced with an online sing-a-long this weekend and kids loved it. Deep care to you all, we’re in this together. 

 

~ Vanessa

PS139 Parent 

 

Help Families get connected to WIFI

 

Share your internet – If you have internet, you can share your internet with your neighbors who do not have connectivity if your router reaches their apartment/ home. You can simply share your password with them for the time being. 

 

Low cost or Free WIFI

 

Brooklyn Public Library Hotspots – BPL has now closed through March 31st, but we are checking on resources they may offer.

 

Internet Essentials from Comcast – If you live in a neighborhood with Comcast, you can access Free Comcast Internet for 60-days for Low-Income Households. https://www.internetessentials.com/covid19 

 

Spectrum Broadband – If you live in a neighborhood with Spectrum, you can get free Spectrum WIFI for 60 days if you are a parent of a K – 12 or college student.  https://corporate.charter.com/newsroom/charter-to-offer-free-access-to-spectrum-broadband-and-wifi-for-60-days-for-new-K12-and-college-student-households-and-more 

 

Optimum You may be eligible for Altice Advantage Internet, a low-cost high-speed internet service to benefit families, seniors and veterans. Altice Advantage Internet is available to new Optimum and Suddenlink internet customers, who have not had internet service within the past 60 days and a member of the household also meets one or more of the following eligibility requirements:

Red Hook Wifi – If you live in Red Hook you can access Red Hook WIFI, free community wifi from multiple hubs. You can also get community updates on Red Hook Hub

 

Social Connectivity & Online Learning 

 

Zoom.us – Zoom is an online meeting platform. They have temporarily lifted the restriction on time limits for free accounts so people can use it for online learning – it’s a perfect platform for kids to interact and for virtual classes. You can find instructions for signing up herehttps://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362033-Getting-Started-on-Windows-and-Mac 

Once you create an account you can create a meeting and invite others to join. 

Google Hangout – If you have a gmail account, Google Hangout may be the easiest platform to use. To schedule a hangout, you can go to Google Calendar, schedule a calendar time, and click on “add conferencing” and “Hangouts.” You can then enter email addresses in “guests,” and click “save” and “send.” Your guests will get an emailed invitation. They can click the calendar invite, and click “Join Hangout” to be connected to you at that time.  Mobile users will need to add the “Google Hangout” app to join.
