This fall, Out There Atlanta presents a continuation of Summer Sound Series, a collection of interviews with artists who find inspiration in sound or directly use it in their works.

Episode 75:  Valerie George is an artist and educator whose interest in sound led her to develop an alter-ego, Nam June Psyche, and tour the country with a station-wagon full of sound equipment. Along the way, she met up artists and musicians for collaborations. The resulting documentation was most recently exhibited in Nashville’s Coop Gallery, and reviewed on BURNAWAY.

Topics include: Giving herself a life-changing gift at 30, Black Mountain College, the artist as editor, and teaching with the openness of a student.
