Springscapes is a series of installations, workshops and live-stream events that highlights the dramatic changes that take place in the natural soundscape from winter to spring. NAISA Artistic Director Darren Copeland will hold a two-day workshop on live-streaming soundscapes on April 17 and 24 at 7 pm EDT in advance of a citizen-led 24 hour livestream event on May 1 called Reveil, which circles the globe with dawn chorus soundscapes from every time zone on Earth. Springscapes will also unveil a new interactive pinhole photography and soundscape installation by Sandy McLennan created with students from South River Public School.
“The transformation of the natural soundscape from winter to spring is a distinguished feature of living in the Almaguin Highlands. NAISA’s new Springscapes series is inspired by this dramatic shift and provides artists with a context within which to engage in the creation of art works that not only focus on natural sounds but expresses this transformation in insightful ways.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.
