Director

Center for Technology + Creativity
 

Peter Gordon is Professor of Music and Coordinator of the Music Technology Program.

Prof. Gordon attended the University of California, San Diego (B.A. Liberal Arts-Music) and Mills College (M.F.A. in Electronic Music and Recording.) He comes to Bloomfield College with a long career as a composer, producer, recording artist and arranger and his professional experience informs his teaching classes in music composition, production and improvisation.

Gordon’s music transcends genres – it is heard in the concert hall as well as on the dance floor. Gordon has received the Obie Award for his work in music theater and the Bessie Award for his compositions for dance, as well as grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and New York State Council on the Arts. He has also been received visiting artist grants from DAAD (Berlin) and Japan-US Friendship Commission. He has composed four operas, released numerous recordings on major and independent labels, most recently a retrospective album on DFA Records, and he has performed internationally with his Love of Life Orchestra.

Yuichiro Nishizawa, M.F.A. Read Bio +/-

Associate Director

Center for Technology + Creativity
 

Yuichiro Nishizawa is an associate professor and the chair of the Division of Creative Arts & Technology.

Professor Nishizawa attended Rhode Island School of Design (BFA in Film/Animation/Video) and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Post-Baccalaureate Certificate and MFA in Art and Technology).

Working with the diverse population of students and like-minded peers at Bloomfield College fuels Nishizawa. He regards his position as a privilege. He is “committed to the practice of knowledge as trans-disciplinary, teaching/learning as non-hierarchical, experiential and collaborative, and education as critical reflection, liberation and social action.”

He has enjoyed teaching regularly the following classes:

  • Design Thinking & Practice
  • Interaction & Interface: Introduction to Physical Computing
  • Process && Interaction: An Introduction
  • Japanese Culture and Language
  • Post-Studio: Collaboration
  • Geographies of Experience

    Nishizawa, born in Tokyo, is interested in the complexity of the technological influences on and beyond everyday experience. He employs a wide array of media and methods in his work and inquiry. His hope is to provide an experience that brings the viewer to questions, furthers their own spirit of inquiry, engages their curiosity, and prompts them to imagine. His innate interest in function and form, conjoined with his investigation, has also led him to pursue furniture design and fabrication.
