Bill Dietz is a composer and writer, based since 2003 in Berlin. From sounding the facade of Le Corbusier’s Unité d’habitation in Marseille to orchestrating echoes across city blocks in Manhattan, his work traces genealogies of publicness and the performance of listening. He is co-chair of Music/Sound in Bard College’s MFA program, and is currently Guest Professor of Sound at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. With Woody Sullender he co-founded and edits Ear │ Wave │ Event. In 2015 Edition Solitude released a monograph on his “Tutorial Diversions,” and in Fall 2017 a book accompanying his work L’école de la claque will appear. http://tutorialdiversions.org/
