Standing Waves #9 : Geoff Mullen @EMW

  • EMW Bookstore 934 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)

Geoff Mullen is an artist & musician from Providence, Rhode Island. Recent projects have included site-specific installation, sculpture, photography & video, collage, workshops, and performance. Geoff has presented work throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe—in venues ranging from concert halls, clubs, museums, galleries, basements, schools, streets, and city gardens. His music has been released on most available audio media, and he is the founder of Rare Youth, an independent record label dedicated to the support of local (RI) underground music. Geoff completed his MFA at Bard College, and has taught at the Massachusetts College of Art & Design and the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). He is currently based in Philadelphia, PA.

Standing Waves is a monthly music, sound, and artists talk series with a concentration on one artist in the performance of and presentation about their work. Standing Waves is given over to a single artist for each event that allows for the performance and auditioning of their work as well as a presentation to the audience about it that makes for an intimate as well as rigorous experience, with the integrity and intention of the artist and work aligned and revealed. A distinguishing element of the series will also be a document in the form of a book that includes critical writings and photographs from the events. This comprehensive approach will elucidate the music, sound art and practices that overlap and comprise the artists’ works.  It was originally conceived by Morgan Evans-Weiler and Mobius Artist Jed Speare.


This event is made possible through a grant provided by the Cambridge Arts Council.
