Darren Copeland - Trinity Square Underwater Soundwalk


Dates:
Fri Jun 14, 2013 19:00 - Fri Jun 14, 2013

Location:
Toronto, Canada

NXNE Art (Soundwalk Performance)

Trinity Square (meet outside Eaton Centre entrance in Trinity Square)
Call 416-652-5115 for more info
Admission FREE

Listeners will be led on a soundwalk around Trinity Square Park. During the walk the sonic architecture of the park will be animated by narrow high frequency beams. The beams will project underwater sounds such as clicking noises from fish and will create the auditory impression that the fish are moving along the ground or across the walls of buildings and other structures. Darren Copeland is a Canadian sound artist and is the Artistic Director of New Adventures in Sound Art. Copeland's sound art work explores the everyday soundscape and spatial listening. Recently, he has just returned from two performances in Belgium using the Audio Spotlight directional loudspeaker, which will be featured in this performance.

Toronto, Canada

NXNE Art (Performance)

416-652-5115
Admission - $5

This performance takes place inside the Elastic Planets multichannel sound field and deals with similar source materials and processes. The difference is that in the performance decisions about event types and timings are made by us, in the installation these decisions are made by the generating machine. Instant Places is Ian Birse & Laura Kavanaugh Through the 1990's Ian Birse made performances for altered guitars, spoken words, and analog video. He has been making tools for virtual visual sonics since the turn of the century. Laura Kavanaugh is an improvisor who works between music, noise, light, and the shapes of things. She was active in interdisciplinary circles in Edmonton and Calgary, making performance works for samplers, overhead projectors, piano and voice, before taking Instant Places on the road with Ian for five years.
