Summer Intensive ’11 Showcase

Audio Revolution! Dream Summer IntensiveFor the first Audio Revolution! Show of the Fall 2011 Season, the students of Youth Media Project’s (YMP) after-school Production Team created this broadcast that showcases the work done by YMP’s Summer Intensive. Teaming up with the Santa Fe Arts Institute and using the space of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s music studio and classrooms, YMP facilitated eight youth from Santa Fe and Albuquerque in learning the ins and outs of storytelling and audio production in two weeks. The culmination of these two weeks are aural narratives that were focused on the theme of dreams and showcased in this show! Hosts Ari Rappaport (also a Summer Intensive member) from the MASTERS program and Maheyo Tapp of ATC (the Academy for Technology and the Classics) guide listeners through these amazing stories. Enjoy!

Words

“My piece is merely a collection of poems I wrote. I made them as personal as possible.”

What Ari Rappaport said about his YMP/SFAI Summer Intensive piece is quite the understatement.  While it is a collection of poetry, there is nothing ‘mere’ about them. The philosophies Ari dives into are nothing short of extrodinary- through his poems he creates worlds of wonder about the most fundamental ideas of how to live.

Enjoy the poetic philosophies of Ari Rappaport!

Working with YMP as well as Perish1 and Lisa Donahue of the Santa Fe Art Institute, Javier decided to focus his aural creation on dreams. In Javier’s words: “My piece is about dreams- as in the kinds of dreams you have when you sleep.” Enjoy!

“What is American” Seeds of Sound

To Gabe Rima, a Monte Del Sol Senior, being American cannot be easily defined. With the majority of the American population being a multitude of cultures and identities, he has found that the one thing that makes people America is their relative social privilege. But don’t let that idea get you down, his ultimate message is inspiring and empowering.

In The Land Of Summer

“In The Land Of Summer” is a fictional piece written by Marzia Dessi. Created during the Youth Media Project’s Summer Intensive collaboration with the Santa Fe Art Institute.  The radio poem follows the fate of Sunville, an infinite place of summer and sun and green grass and smiles and the infamous magican Mr. Summer.  Marzia’s land of the summer can be seen as an allegory for growing up or the environmental degradation our world is experiencing.
