The Urban Collab Lab: Making Music in the Connected City | DR brings together students from Parsons and across The New School with students from Altos de Chavon to explore the role of technology in supporting new forms of creative collaboration across economic, cultural, and geographic boundaries. It seeks also to discover more about how music emerges and evolves in a connected world where there are more phones than people.

How do music and sound technologies and the mobile phone change the way we make music and collaborate? What can this tell us about ourselves and our cities? How can we create platforms that forge intersections where few previously existed? This collaboration lab invites participants to first collect or record sound via field recorders & mobile phones and then come together for collaborative music composition, idea development, critical reflection, and presentation.

Faculty: Jane Pirone & Claudia Bernett – School of Art, Media & Technology, Parsons
