March & April 2018

My colleague Bill Burns and I recently co-curated an eclectic listening program at the Yukon School of Visual Arts Library called Loud in the Library. It ran every Wednesday evening for four weeks and included recordings of sound art, experimental music, and field recordings. Recalling the spirit of listening to entire long-playing vinyl records with friends in my youth, the series brought people together to listen in a social context.

The series included recordings by Delia Derbyshire, Glenn Gould (The Idea of North), Steve Reich, Francisco Lopez, Bernard Parmegiani, Simeon ten Holt, Pauline Oliveros, Andrea Polli, and Captain Maurice Seddon.

I've started preliminary work on a new project using found footage - a 16mm educational film from 1984 titled Hurricanes and Tornadoes. It presents a cheerfully confident and optimistic view of how technology will help humans to manage weather in the future.
