Cross Waves #8 curated by Jason Ryle
January 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
As societies based on orality, Indigenous cultures have an intricate and special connection to sound itself. Histories, teachings, stories, and information transmitted from mouth to ear, from ear to heart and mind…and to action. The spirit of Indigenous sound waves – Noodaagun in the Anishinabe language – are explored in this collection of works created by Indigenous artists from across Canada. We are surrounded by Indigenous sound waves and this land has been bathed in the sounds of Indigenous people for millennia. With the recent cultural and artistic renaissance of Indigenous media arts, Indigenous artists working in audio are creating sonic embodiments of their experiences and representations of their culture; aural beacons that invite you to listen and share in the legacy of this land.
