NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River

Photographs trigger memories of places we have visited. Sound recordings of those same places often give us a chance to relive those moments and even re-experience them on an emotional and visceral level. The artists included on this concert use sound recordings from across Europe and eastern North America to re-live experiences from their past while introducing us - the listening audience - to a new world that might resonate with our own.

Program:
I. Ravenspeak by Andrew O'Connor
A performance for live multi-channel audio and two performers, based off adaptations of two traditional Inuit stories about the Raven. Using field recordings of multiple Ravens and their extensive vocalizations, along with the soundscapes they inhabit, Ravenspeak creates an immersive setting for two ancient Inuit stories, the Raven Creation Myth and the story of the Raven and the Whale.

Squeeeeque - The Improbable Igloo is a sound installation that encourages collaborative sound making between strangers. Its intimate space encourages the loss of inhibition. With mics in hand, strangers collaborate in song, their voices enhanced by sonic embellishments.
