I had the opportunity these last two weeks to visit Art Institute of Chicago and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to meet with Professors and students, tour the facilities, and sit in on classes. I had a great time at both schools, and I’d like to thank my hosts for showing me around and providing me with plenty of useful information about their programs.

At Chicago, I talked with Nic Collins, head of the Sound Departmnet, and sat in on a meeting of graduate students. I also attended Nic’s class and got a peek at the sound facilities, and the various shops available to students.

Amy Curley showed me around at Rensselaer, and in addition to seeing the sound and video facilities and talking with a bunch of students I was able to talk with Kathy High and Michael Century, meet Pauline Oliveros, Tomie Hahn, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Curtis Bahn, Steve Peirce, and Neil Rolnick (among others) check out a concert by Michelle Nagai, and sit in on several wonderful classes.
