probable no.41- Noppakorn Auesirinucroch (Guitar)- NYC

Noppakorn Auesirinucroch, Guitar. Mise_En Place, NYC. Nov. 17th, 2022.

Most of the pieces in this collection can be not-/performed by any non-/musical instruments. “probable no.41” is also part of a series I’ve written based on the wonderful poetry of Gertrude Stein.
The majority of the pieces in my collection “probable” were created with the idea of the non-performative aspect of performance in support of artists who are wiped out or disappear as a result of social-political decisions and circumstances.
The “probable” collection is about “nearly nothing.” This collection is characterized either by non-conventional components, indeterminate elements, confusion, undefined materials, impossibility, invisibility, etc., or by musical elements that are coupled with these materials. The performance of collection occurs when an aim, concept, intention, or interpretation causes this nothingness to become something.
The program includes works by Emily Koh, Ramin Akhavijou, Piyawat Louilarpprasert, Jean-Patrick Besingrand, Brandon Amy Brandon, Victor Baez, Chatori Shimizu, and Tomasz Skweres.

Czechoslovak Nationality Room Scholarship 2022, University of Pittsburgh

The recipient of the Nationality Room Czechoslovak Scholarship.

The Nationality Rooms and Intercultural Exchange Programs began in 1926. As committees completed their rooms, they turned their attention to creating study abroad scholarships. The Nationality Rooms and Intercultural Exchange Programs have awarded scholarships for summer study abroad annually since 1948. The purpose of the awards is to enable University of Pittsburgh students to have global and intercultural learning experiences around the world. The scholarships are intended to support immersive experiences. It is the vision and generosity of the Nationality Rooms committees and supporters of NRIEP’s mission that have raised more than $3.5 million to provide these important intercultural exchange opportunities.
