A quick update on the CompArts doings this fall.

Comparative Arts had several guest artists in this month. We visited Academy Award-winner Luis Resto in his downtown loft in Detroit. Leo Gillis gave a presentation about microphones and how they work,

We also completed our first artistic response to our Detroit trip, titled Spirit of Detroit. The 6-minute installation perfomance will be presented at the Interlochen Elementary School, Pathfinder School and possibly at senior centers in town.

Kim Le Blanc from Interlochen Center for the Arts' technology department started the 3D printing “microphones of the future” class with Comparative Arts students. Sally Eisele, general manager of Interlochen Public Radio, is beginning to gather ideas for a Detroit-inspired broadcast with the students.
