Ivanna Muse - Inspiration making sound show art Ivanna Muse - Inspiration making sound

Creative Disturbance

Ivanna came to my attention from our mutual friend, Roger Malina. He had met her during a trip to MIT and thought that she might be an interesting person to interview for the "Sound and Data" channel. So this was a bit of a cold call since I was not that familiar with her work. It was amazing to find out the angle at which she is approaching this idea of "sound and data" which was so different from so many of my other guests. I was fascinated.
