Richard Lerman

Richard Lerman has created electronic music and interdisciplinary art since the 1960’s offering
many performances, installations and screenings in North and South America, Asia, Europe, Australia
and New Zealand. His work develops unexpected textures from natural phenomena and materials,
collected with his own specially constructed transducers/microphones. Using these, he has recorded
audio/video at sites including: fences along the US/Mexico Border; barbed wire at Auschwitz &
Manzanar; sites in Chile and Alaska; rice, wheat and corn in Japan/Arizona/Holland, ants/wasps nests
in the Sonoran Desert; spider webs and more.

Recently he has used carbon fiber rods to record sounds of wind and ice in the Arctic while at the
Kilpisjärvi (Finland) BioArts Residency in October, and in vineyards along the Danube, in spring
2014. Live performances include works for amplified tuning forks; metal being heated with blow
torches, and amplified/bowed bicycles. Other work includes loudspeaker objects fashioned from
piezos and electronics using 20 x 24 Polaroids, tree bark, peach & eggplant skins, etc.

He has taught at the Boston Museum School (1973 - 95) and Arizona State University (1994 –
present). He directed the Sound Art at Mobius Series, Boston from 1984-87 and has received
fellowships from the NEA, Guggenheim Foundation, the Asian Cultural Council and many others.
