Production period of invited artists

“Circulatory” performance
June 4 and 5 at 5 pm

Motivated by the audio research conducted by OBORO in the installation and spatialization of hybrid broadcasting devices related to modular synthesis, sounding_bodies invites four sound artists to create work in a dedicated space, whose acoustic scenography was conceived based on the artists’ specific needs.

Over the course of one week, Stephen Beaupré, Kara-Lis Coverdale, Sarah Davachi, Steve Bates and Emilie Roby will focus on and transform their relation to space and sound in a context set up by Stéphane Claude and Philippe-Aubert Gauthier, in concert with each artist. The public will be able to hear the outcome of their explorations and see their respective creation spaces on June 4 and 5, 2016, at 5 pm, by going from one space to the next during a “circulatory” performance.

Sounding_bodies builds on the Audio Art / Modular Synthesis workshop held at the New Media Lab from November 7 to 21, 2015. The workshop’s aim was to initiate a migration—already begun by several sound artists and electronic musicians—from purely computer-based environments to physical, analog, tactile and haptic approaches to sound composition, installation, and performance.

The methods and practical applications of the Audio Art / Modular Synthesis workshop were documented in a text written by Philippe-Aubert Gauthier and Stéphane Claude and published in issue 17.4—which focused on analogue and modular synthesis—of eContact!, the online journal of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC).
