Bill Dietz is a composer and writer, born in Arizona. Since 2012, he is co-chair of the Music/Sound Department in Bard College’s Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts in New York. His work on genealogies of reception and the “political aesthetics of listening” is often presented in festivals, museums, and academic journals, but also in apartment buildings, magazines, and on public streets. In 2013 he co-founded Ear│Wave│Event with Woody Sullender. He has published two books of listening scores: one on his Tutorial Diversions series, meant to be performed at home (Eight Tutorial Diversions, 2009–2014, 2015); and the other, made up of “concert pieces,” based on historical and contemporary audience behavior (L’école de la claque, 2017). With Amy Cimini, he co-edited, Maryanne Amacher: Selected Writings and Interviews (2020), and he is co-author, with Kerstin Stakemeier, of Universal Receptivity (2021).
