  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Awardees this year include Leon Max, Michael Egeck, and Isabel and Ruben Toledo.



We will be leaving Los Angeles traveling directly to Rome, Italy to experience the city through both its history and its contemporary life. Art is our focus and we will taste, look, hear and touch the living city of Rome. By engaging local scholars and artists we will be guided into a private and special world not available on a short excursion. Working and living on site and responding to the environment will add to the fully immersive travel experience.
