Ambient A/V performances Little Oak Animal and Nick Kuepfer


Dates:
Sat Nov 23, 2013 20:00 - Sat Nov 23, 2013

Location:
Toronto, Canada

Little Oak Animal is an audio/visual collaboration between Toronto artists Rob Cruickshank and Dafydd Hughes. Their performances combine seemingly disparate elements - computer-generated sound and visuals projected from slides and Super-8 films - into an organic whole where each element in turn leads the other through a quiet narrative. The Anonymous Report by Nick Kuepfer is a collection of edited field recordings and minimalist compositions gathered in the remote terrain of Svalbard, processed and manipulated live through multiple 1/4" reel to reels.

Sat Nov 16, 2013 20:00 - Sat Nov 16, 2013

Toronto, Canada

Many audio mappings of places have been heard because of NAISA's theme of Sonic Geography for its 2013 programming year but this performance provides two audio-visual mappings. The first is a videomusic work "Nord/Sud" by Thierry Gauthier that takes the audience through Costa Rica, Mexico and Québec and the second "Boblo Island Soundmap" by Andrew O’Connor is a multi-media adaptation of "Boblo" a theatre work based on Boblo Island located at the mouth of the Detroit River.

ImageScape - Performance by Meridian & work by Michael Trommer


Dates:
Sat Nov 09, 2013 20:00 - Sat Nov 09, 2013

Location:
Toronto, Canada

ImageScape includes works by Vancouver Island collective Meridian and Toronto's Michael Trommer. The fluid abstract imagery of Kevin Mazutinec’s digitally generated organic projections shift and move, supported by lush ambient electroacoustic soundscapes from Robin Davies and Marian Van der Zon which play off of the emotion and the content of Justin McGrail's spoken word, which addresses concepts of home, space, geography, migration, love and the human condition. "The Night Swimmer" is a re-working of material from Trommer's installation Ghostwood, which was presented at Sound Travels in 2012. and will be part of a future release on the 'unfathomless' label. Like Ghostwood the work is based on field recordings made in Georgian Bay of night swims.
