This year's exciting projects include a recording of African drumming accompanied by a string quartet; a digital soundtrack to revitalize and augment a theatre piece; a CD of original music to accompany performers in a one ring circus; the soundscape for a collaboration between a choreographer and video artist; and a CD narrative of an artistís grandfather's childhood on the Illinois frontier.

The Artist Support Program is now in its eighth year of supporting local artists working creatively with sound. Artists of every genre and style have been represented, including writers, choreographers, multidisciplinary artists, theater sound designers, radio producers, filmmakers, visual artists, and musicians and composers. Eight selected artists are awarded studio residencies with a Jack Straw engineer. An additional ten artists receive matching awards for studio time as part of our Artist Assistance Program. Artists are given opportunities to present their work at public events like Meet the Artist Night, during school/education residencies, and in the New Media Gallery. Their work will also be included in our radio features, on CDs and on our website.

Special thanks to the King County Arts Commission, the Seattle Arts Commission, the Washington State Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, PONCHO, Corporate Council for the Arts, the Allen Foundation for the Arts, and individual contributors for their support.
