Moving A Home Studio / Questions for Steve

This week, I’m taking a pause on the Studios and the Art to spend some time on the Events we held during the first month of Nomadic Studio. On opening night, it was our distinct pleasure to have Steve Albini come and speak to us about moving his Electrical Audio home studio in East Irving […]

Rumpus Room Housewarming

The Rumpus Room has been used as a recording studio since at least 2001. Even before Brian McNally moved in and modified the Rumpus to its current glory, Gwen Ihnat encouraged us to use the space as a recording studio. Portions of Bric-A-Brac’s “16 Luxury Units” and Danger Adventure’s “the Pomegranate” were tracked there, among […]

Protect Yr. Neck: Credit and Insurance for Artists

Our first non-opening event at Nomadic Studio involved two super smart gentlemen providing practical advice. Bob Farster and Alex Maiolo presented a double-header on how artists can improve their credit, and sort their insurance, respectively. The aptly titled panel “Protect Yr. Neck” sought to shed light on some of the more real world problems that […]

Home Recording Panel

Mark Greenberg of the Coctails runs Mayfair Workshop where he captures spots for commercials, tv shows, movies and the like. Greg Norman is an engineer at Electrical Audio, as well as his long-running […]

Paint Wars

Taking a quick detour from the mural tour to talk about a really cool mini exhibit we held within the walls of Nomadic Studio. Jim Duignan, Beth Wiedner and I are all educators by trade, and so the lens of our exhibit was almost always about teaching others about art and the process as opposed […]

ConfiDance & A Night at the Museum

Yesterday’s “Paint Wars” benefit post is directly tied to today’s art. As I had mentioned, planning for the exhibit had already been locked in and underway when Beth Wiedner and I received an exciting opportunity to try something new with Nomadic Studio. Ian Bennett and Renee Bennett of Anode Gallery brought Lonnie of bear.illa to […]

Solar-Powered Theremin Workshop

Nomadic Studio wasn’t just a snappy title, although it was that, too. We worked in the space near-daily and while the panels were fun and informative presentations with Q&A sessions, we also held some hands-on art workshops in the space, as well as in 0170, the science lab satellite studio we had around the corner.
