Starting to teach at University of Iowa as a Visiting Assistant Professor in Composition and Electronic Media

I am honored and excited to have started my new phase in my life as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa in Iowa City for the academic year 2018-2019. I will be teaching MA and PhD composition students, leading the composition seminar and running the music electronic studio. My classes of electronic media will focus on foundation of electronic music and create work on Pro-Tools. Second semester will focus on Max MSP and Jitter as a collaborative interdisciplinary class using physical objects and sound and visual processing with the Max objects.

New!!! I will be a Sponsored Artist for Winter High Concept Labs Chicago!

Super happy to announce that I'll be an HCL artist in the coming winter, in which Mabel KwanSara Zalek and I will work on our new project 'Opera Butoh Lab'! Very excited about this!

OPERA BUTOH LAB

OPERA BUTOH LAB

INTERDICIPLINARY

Opera Butoh Lab is an interdisciplinary collaboration between composer Sivan Cohen Elias, pianist Mabel Kwan, and artist/choreographer/curator Sara Zalek. We will be exploring the creation of hybrid theater works that unify the physical and sonic dimensions of performance using the body, musical and invented instruments, objects, texts, electronic sound design, and video projections. These experiments will take place as workshops and rehearsals – some open to the public – in which the collaborators will create puppetry-like relationships between different materials, media and fields. At its heart: the theme of secrets. Hidden secrets, revealed secrets, reflections, distorted truths, illusion, hyperrealism and the in-between.
