Tony White:

Fairly new to Baltimore, Tony White is the new director of the Decker Library at MICA. Not only did he give some interesting fall tips, but he also provided us with a wealth of book-related information. (Jasmine Sarp)

City Paper: What do you like about fall?

Tony White: I like the change of seasons. I like having all the students come back to campus. Fall and spring are my favorite seasons.

CP: What are you excited for?

The opening of the new BMA contemporary art wing; Frostbiting at the Downtown Sailing Center, which provides accessibility sailing for people who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity; also the Small Press Expo (SPX), which features mainly graphic arts—I’m excited about that.

Dan Deacon:

We caught Dan at the pilot launch of his new smartphone app for his concert-goers. He’s been working with Keith Lea and others to develop the app, which senses audio tones and transforms the phone’s screen and camera flash into a synchronized light-and-sound source. (Jasmine Sarp)

City Paper: What do you like about fall?

Dan Deacon: I like that it’s a season that doesn’t feel gross in Baltimore.

CP: What are you excited for?

DD: The new phone app, the tour . . . I’m excited for the one-year anniversary of Occupy. I’m excited for the election and thinking about important issues like gay rights and immigration rights.
