Xerocks by Cecile Babiole (also part of NXNE)


Dates:
Thu Jun 05, 2014 00:00 - Sun Jul 13, 2014

Location:
Toronto, Canada

Thurs - Fri 1-4pm, Sat 10am-3pm, + special hours on July 13 TBA @ the NAISA Space, 601 Christie St #252, FREE

Xerocks is an interactive installation designed to turn two copying machines into musical instruments. Press a button on the machine and that will trigger a copying cycle, simultaneously generating a sequence of sounds. By (mis)appropriating and thereby alienating this familiar piece of office equipment, Xerocks ironically morphs an imaging apparatus into a sound production device. Xerocks is presented in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Toronto and is sponsored by Direct Office Solutions.

Performance by Erin Sexton

Using a pair of open electromagnetic Amplifier circuits, Erin Sexton explores sites with historical, mystical, and energetic significance, tuning into frequencies both modern and mysterious. Her own body’s electromagnetic field interacts with the site, Amplifying signals like an antenna through contact with the circuit, becoming a medium for the sonification of waves and feedback.
