Music: Joachim Eckl will be teaching the Wintersession course, “Building a Bridge of Sound.”
Eckl was born on the edge of the Bohemian Woods in Austria and is currently living there now. He has been running the HEIM.ART®-Station, a former warehouse as an artistic working-field since 2002. Eckl regards himself as a "social engineer". "Social sculptures" are his main interest. He uses water as the basic element for human interaction in his work. Listening is an essential for him in order to develop a new organ for the arts. Music he understands as the most social form of art.
