SoundSpace at the Blanton

SoundSpace is a dynamic concert series that brings together musicians and other creatives to connect visual and sound art. At the helm of this experimental sound-based experience is the award-winning Austin-based composer, artist, and curator, Steve Parker. The series demonstrates the Blanton’s commitment to nurturing collaborations that provide innovative experiences with art, inspire creativity, and support the educational mission of The University of Texas at Austin. SoundSpace is generously underwritten by Michael Chesser.

About Steve Parker
Steve Parker is a musician, artist, and curator who creates communal, democratic work to examine history, systems, and behavior. His projects include elaborate civic rituals for humans, animals, and machines; listening sculptures made from salvaged marching band instruments that are modeled after obsolete WWII acoustic locators; and cathartic transportation symphonies for operators of cars, pedicabs, and bicycles. He is the recipient of the 2018 Tito’s Art Prize, a Fulbright Fellowship, a Harrington Fellowship, the Best of Austin Award, and the Austin Critics’ Table Award.
