Professor Bowes was a founding member of the department and chaired it for several years, retiring two years ago as Faculty Emeritus. In many ways the department is his legacy. Many students of Professor Bowes attended the funeral. Professor Bowes was widely known for his interdisciplinary aesthetic and was an accomplished sound designer as well as director. He wrote several articles for Stage Directions magazine. Former student David Hunter dedicated his sound design for On the Verge at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music to the memory of Mal.
