Very pleased to be invited to be part of this Sustainable Sound series by CESSA (Concordia University) with Jordan Lacey and Pamela Z. I'm looking forward to connecting CESSA students in Montreal to the Acts of Air exhibition on the 26th.
It's been super interesting over the last couple of months doing workshops like this one - being able to be able to connect with people while they enact the artworks, watching their videos and talking about how their location and performative choices come into play. Looking forward to this one on the 26th! Sign up if you'd like to join in (there's a little space for non CESSA students I believe)

A new sound installation 'Pillars' at Profound Sound Festival.
Payers Park slide, Saturday 13th Feb, 12-7,
A performance of musical pillars from the 500 year old Vittala temple situated in Hampi, India. The temple was designed with granite stone pillars that, in addition to holding up the roof, were positioned and shaped to resonate different musical notes when played. They are sounded using a tapping technique, similar to that of playing a piano. In effect the entire structure is one large musical instrument, which is an inspiring example of sonically led architecture.
This sound work is a short composition made from recordings of tour guides re-enacting the historical music played on these pillars. Installed in the MUF architect's Payers Park, the audio performance of musical pillars plays out from within a 'sonic structure', a pipe and horn half submerged in the hillside.
Profound Sound presents an eclectic programme of live bands, experimental music, installation sound art, theatre, talks and workshops. We invite you to explore new sounds, new ways of hearing and consider the future of our audio landscape in a series of events show-casing some of Kent’s finest contemporary artists and musicians.
Feb 12 & 13
