Research Results: And then it was now, by Frances Dyson

Each year, the Grants for Researchers in Residence program provides two researchers with an opportunity to work at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) as well as access to its archive fonds and collections. 

Frances Dyson (Ph.D.) was a CR+D researcher in residence in 2004. She primarily focused her work on the 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds and the collection of documents published by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). In this publication, Dyson analyzes the discourse on art and technology and the social utopias surrounding E.A.T. projects between 1966 and 1972. Ms. Dyson also examines the aspect of sound in the performances of John Cage, Alex Hay and David Tudor during 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, held in 1966:
