Tomorrow night, Indiana Humanities is hosting Oliver Blank, a composer from New Orleans, for an INconversation (sorry, it’sold out – but we will have a recording available after the event). Oliver is here as part of We Are City [IMPORT], a project that brings innovative thinkers and creators to Indianapolis for a month at a time to work on projects throughout the city.
Oliver can certainly be described as an innovator. He is a composer. He builds sound toys, creates public installations and composes symphonic cinematic music. Oliver’s sound toys and public installations empower residents to connect with sound and create surprising experiences that bring a sense of wonder back to their city.
