The sound artist Lora Dimova, Tuukka Haapakorpi, Jarmo Huhta, Anssi Laiho and Marko Timlin, from Finland, have been selected as part of the official program at Bobst Library’s Immersion Room in New York, curated by Michael J. Schumacher, a New York based composer and sound artist.

Schumacher ran the sound gallery Diapason at locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn from 1996 through 2011. The Bobst series continues Diapason’s programs in a new setting, a publicly accessible space inside New York University.

The evening-length program, on November 1, 2019, will consist of one piece by each of the five selected sound artists. This a collaboration between Bobst Library and the Artist Association MUU, which has been made possible by an initiative by curator Schumacher.

The striking, 12-story Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, receives 10,000 visits per day. The sound system at the new listening room of Bobst Library, called the Feldstein Immersion Room, in the Avery Fisher Center, a world-renowned research center for the recorded arts, can accommodate a wide range of audience and consists of 12 channels with Genelec 8040s plus subwoofer.
