Mykola Haleta recently joined the Art & Design Department in Fall 2021 as an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design. Haleta's enthusiasm for design has led to a vast amount of research interests, and his most recent accomplishment will be performed at an upcoming event in Santa Cruz, California.
On Friday, February 25, Haleta will be performing five new electronic music compositions from his forthcoming album on NADA records - "Landtops: 2013-2022". His performance is part of the NADA experimental sound art record label, which has curated a label showcase and festival at the Indexical Foundation based in Santa Cruz. Indexical provides a short biography on Haleta:
