Craig G Foisy

Adjunct Instructor; Assistant Director, Open Arts

CG Foisy enjoys working with sounds (sometimes music), and images (sometimes film). He has a range of influences — Brian Eno, Erroll Morris, Jill Freedman, Todd Rundgren, Chris Marker, Wendy Carlos — and he has sought to develop a style of music-ish and film-ish projects that overlap his interests in the ideas and practices of documentary film, street photography, futurism, musique concrète, archival media, sensory ethnography, and prog-rock troubadouria. His compositions and sound design pieces have appeared on stage at 92Y, Symphony Space, on screen at the Tribeca Film Festival, SXSW, and DOC NYC.  He has collaborated with the Cinema 16 performance series and with WFMU radio, and he has performed at indie music venues across NYC (Mercury Lounge, Williamsburg Music Hall, Knitting Factory). He received a B.A. in philosophy from the College of William & Mary, pursued a graduate fellowship at Duke University before finally enrolling in art school (M.F.A, Hunter College). He lives in Brooklyn where where he writes, records, and releases music with his project Crown the Invisible, and where he is an affiliated artist with 4Hawk Productions.
