Artist Talk with Natasha Barrett
October 27, 2017, 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River
NAISA's new Arts Meetup will overlap on this day with the Soundhackers Intensive. Our guest speaker will be Natasha Barrett. Here is a description of what she plans to present:

'Space' as an aspect of musical structure has influenced my composition for almost 25 years, permeating my approach to the creation of sound installations, acousmatic composition and live performance. The role of ambisonics technologies has become particularly important and in this presentation I will explain some of the ways in which I work with both higher-order synthesised sound-fields and lower-order sound-field recordings.

I will expand on how I attempt to derive spatial-musical structures from real-world environments and from the spatial behaviour of real-world objects. With sound examples I will attempt to show how spatial structures become inseparable from the development of other aspects of the sound material, and how we may connect concepts of point, image and immersion along a continuum of transformations.
