Program Details

Our artists in residence pull inspiration from the powers of nature, the emotions of silence, and the dynamics of spirituality through creation. Inspirational, guided videos will take viewers through the tours of physical places where our artists find inspiration. Witness their process from the first spark of an idea all the way through creation. Live Q&A sessions with our artists will be hosted in person and streamed on Facebook.

Building a Creative Community

As artists, musicians and dancers converge at Sound View, a powerful conversation of the creative community ignites. With monthly, open dialogues for North Fork natives, we tap into the energy of community to celebrate inclusion and creativity. Engagement and perspective are key elements in experiencing the power of life. Our artist participants will therefore host open working sessions, display key works, and perform, inviting the community into rare opportunities to witness the artist's journey, from inspiration to completion.

Spring Artists in Residence

Julia Bland

Featured Visual Artist in Residence

April 12th - 21st

Julia Bland’s works incorporate painting and weaving, developing patterns that bind elements into a whole. Through weaving, cutting, sewing, dying and painting, the surface becomes a visible record of her evolving process. Reviews of Bland's work have appeared in The New York Times, Modern Painters, and The New Yorker. She has received awards including The Milton and Sally Avery fellowship from Yaddo and The Florence Leif Award for Excellence in Painting. Bland received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008 and her MFA from Yale School of Art in 2012.

Paul Loren

Featured Musician in Residence

March 27th - March 31st

Leading a new generation of soulful crooners, Paul Loren is a singer, songwriter, producer and consummate entertainer. A native New Yorker, Paul was raised on the rich legacy of soul, classic pop, and the Great American Songbook and in those musical idioms he feels most at home. Taking elements from early R&B, jazz and Brill Building pop, he crafts his music with an ear towards timelessness. While at Sound View, Paul Loren plans to work on refreshing his mind and spirit while using the inspiration of his surroundings to cultivate new ideas and write new music. He plans to continue to work through that process on the piano live in front of the attendees for the first time.

Mau Quiros

Featured Musician in Residence

April 6th - 14th

Costa Rican born, Mau Quiros is a musician, filmmaker and producer based in New York City. He has arranged and composed symphonic music for Ben Folds and Graham Nash in addition to performing. In March 2018, he performed with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra at the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow. His current projects combine filmmaking, photography and music, creating a soundtrack from everyday places. His solo projects consist of several instruments and a loop pedal, recording himself playing other instruments and improvising on the piano to producing songs in real time. He will develop more of these pieces during his residency. Mau was recently awarded a Full Artist residency In Umbria, Italy to create a music/film piece in 2019.

Jules Gimbrone

Featured Artist and Composer in Residence

April 22nd - 26th

Jules Gimbrone is a New York City based artist and composer who creates fragile corporeal sound and sculptural ensembles that highlight the differentiations between modes of perceptual acquisition—specifically visual and sonic—within complex and precarious arrangements of subjects and objects. Using a variety of recording and amplifying technologies, materials, and the processes of decomposition, Gimbrone investigates how sound travels. While at Sound View, Gimbrone will be placing her sounding glass vessels inside the architecture of the hotel to create photographic tableau vivants where the resonant glass vessels become living subjects depicting transmorphic scenes.
