Annual Meeting 2023 – Session 8: Sound Systems for Art Installation – from Chaos to Order
June 24th to 26th
A conversation with Jeremy Lee, Rob Kaplowitz, and Katherine Gonzalez.
What we can and can’t control – let it inspire rather than frustrate! Similarities between Theater and Installation…and how to work with people who know nothing about Sound.
During his career, Robert Kaplowitz was passionate about the intersection of story, society and
deliberately curated sound. He spent 29 years creating work as a sound designer and composer for
theater, opera, art installations and film, and was honored with an OBIE Award for Sustained
Excellence in Sound Design, and both a Tony and an Audelco for Fela! He developed his
dramaturgically driven approach to design during his years with James Houghton at the O’Neill
Playwrights Center and spent his career collaborating with visionary artists including Mr. Houghton,
Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Luqman Brown, Lisa Peterson, Michael John Garces, Regina Taylor, Bill T.
Jones, Skip Mercier, Jane Cox and many others. He served on the faculty at Princeton, is a proud
spouse and parent, co-founded We Embrace Fatherhood (www.weembracefatherhood.org), and is
currently enrolled at Drexel University’s Thomas Kline School of Law (Class of 2026).
