Sat May 03, 2014 12:00 - Sat May 03, 2014

Location:
Toronto, Canada

meet @ The NAISA Space #252
Admission FREE


In a SOUNDwalk, the listening “audience” moves through a place and the environment “performs.” The walking listener and the environment create a unique piece together that can only occur during the time of the walk. In a SOUNDwalk we take the time to hear the environment: we are its true ear witnesses. And like any musician, the environment offers us its sounds for our consideration.Join us for a lunch hour SOUNDwalk led by Darren Copeland, exploring sound environments in the area of the Artscape Wychwood Barns. Participants should be sure to wear appropriate footwear and clothing for any weather condition.

Artist Talk on May 3 at 1 PM


Carrier Signal marked the centenary of composer John Cage’s birth. Cage created scores, using chance operations, which designated a series of tunings and volumes for multiple radios. Harp and Stone developed an electromechanical system that creates similar compositions, including static between stations, silence, and bursts of talk and music. At 1pm on May 3rd, Hilary Harp and Reva Stone introduce us to their installation work and to their collaboration in making their installation Carrier Signal.
