In conjunction with Bill Fontana: Sonic Shadows, this program expands on a history of sound artists and musicians exploring ambient noise, environmental sound, and field recording. Fowler's filmic collaborations with artists Eric La Casa, Lee Patterson, and Toshiya Tsunoda establish a meaningful dialogue between looking and listening.
