Bruce Odland, sonic thinker, composer, and sound artist is known for his large scale, public space sound installations which transform city noise into harmony, real-time. Last year, working with Sam Auinger as 'O+A', he co-created 'Blue Moon', an installation that altered the harmonic mix of the World Financial Center Plaza using the moon, tides, harmonic tuning tubes, and cement loudspeakers. O+A has changed the sonic character of many public spaces around the world. Odland has also contributed ideas and energy to projects in theatre, film, dance, public art, festivals, radio, and museums. His many collaborations include work with Laurie Anderson, Dan Graham, Andre Gregory, Wallace Shawn, Peter Sellars, Joanne Akailitis, Robert Woodruff, Tony Oursler, Peter Erskine, and the Wooster Group. His 'Sounds from the Vaults', a playable orchestra of virtual instruments for the Field Museum in Chicago, won the Gold Muse Award from the Association of American Museums. Recently his 'I Feel Good' was part of a collaborative work titled DTAOT: COMBINE at the Whitney Biennial. He lives in upstate New York. He is currently researching and writing a book with Sam Auinger about hearing in the age of noise, mounting an opera with the Wooster Group, and working with Michael Luck Schneider on an interactive art piece for the MCA in Sydney, Australia.
