In preparation for making Art’s Birthday realizations of Anne-F Jacques text score “Piece for objects found in the street”, NAISA Artistic Director Darren Copeland will host two online meet up workshops to provide helpful guidance and feedback for those new to recording sounds with digital recorders and mobile phones. He will also show some strategies for covering the microphone with a coffee cup and other containers and what interesting acoustic results can be produced with this unconventional method.

Talks

Storytelling from another era
By Don Hill
January 30, 2021, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Online Location Issued after Advance Registration
Admission fee of $10 is optional


In this online presentation, Don Hill will lead a discussion on observations, topics and themes that emerge from his installation Story Trees, which can also be experienced online at storytrees.ca. The interactive digital software in the installation tags the tone & mood of oral history interviews he recorded in Northern Ontario in the 1970’s with Anne (Prevost) Hill. Sensitive to the modern listener's disposition, the dynamic software sets in motion complementary audio & visual materiel in the spirit of a Socratic dialogue; it’s in this way, the contemporary listener is perhaps drawn to different conclusions about what they hear and feel about storytelling from another era.

Origin stories and cosmology stories are important and generational hereditary tales which root us, as Indigenous people, in our identity reaching far beyond any land based migration legends and most certainly lives outside any notion of a land bridge. We know where we come from, and we know to where we will return.

In this online presentation, Janet Rogers will be on hand to present and discuss three of her recent poetic audio works - Stereo Ribbons, tsi takaronhya ke and Sky Woman Falling. The presentation will take place online. Admission fee is optional, but advance registration is required.
