Dual Abrasives
By Alan Bloor
August 31 at 7 pm.
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River
General $10
The performance, Dual Abrasives, will compare two (of many) sound projects of Alan Bloor: Knurl and Pholde. Both of these projects use the treated analog sounds of metals cultures from found objects. Knurl, began in 1994, as an idea to capture the very harsh and abrasive sounds of the welding shops in which Bloor worked. Pholde, which was initiated in 2002, has a more suspenseful, "ambient" sound. In this project, Bloor uses the natural resonances of the metal. This evening's performance will concentrate mainly on sounds from saw blades, which coincides with the exhibition hosted by NAISA of a work by Sonia Paço-Rocchia that also explores the sounds of saw blades.

Sep 27-29, 2019, 11 am to 3 pm, FREE

FREE
Double-Tranchant @ NAISA is a drop-in live performance by Sonia Paço-Rocchia that will take place during Culture Days weekend using musical saws and other instruments inspired by objects that can cut. The performance is a commentary on the contrast between the brute, the sharp and the flexible, the fascinating.

Lames @ NAISA is an interactive installation for an ensemble of automated musical saws.

The composition follows paths that are chosen depending on how the visitors position themselves in the room.
