________ About Daniel Fishkin
Early on in Daniel’s music career, by means of his hard work and dedication, he was able to meet and work together with the inventor of the daxophone; Hans Reichel. They spent 9 consecutive days working around the clock in Hans’ Wuppertal studio in Germany (located in Western Germany – 45 minutes from Dusseldorf) building Daniel’s own daxophonic lore. This allowed Daniel to improve his own expertise in building this unique instrument. More about this on his blog: http://dfiction.com/blog/
Daniel received his MA in Music Composition from Wesleyan University, and has taught analog synthesis at Bard College. He is currently pursuing his PhD fellowship in Composition and Computer Music at the University of Virginia.

About the Series
SOUND ACTION: ARTS EVENTS SERIES
Curated by Catalina Jordan Alvarez
Series runs from Jan 21 – March 9 @ Antioch College
Sound Action centers on the promotion of logical decisions (sound) which correspond to sensible activism (action). In Catalina’s term courses, she zooms in on the various ways that individuals can have a significant impact on the world at large. Sound Action aims to inspire audiences into active community participation. It shows that sound as a material (sound waves and their particles etc) is not without its political meanings. We listen to the sound of someone’s voice to determine their class, gender, race. The loudness or quietness of a neighborhood can be traced to economics (how crowded are your living quarters?). How well do we listen?
As we transgress through these seven events, Sound Action meditates on the surface and the superficial, probing the layers and testing the floor. Each event provides a different lens to understand issues in the visible world, but between the lines, is where we find the deeper societal issues.
