practice #9: collection of small moments
saturday, march 18th, 5pm, free entry
we would like all guests to be able to participate, so pls arrive on time. seating is limited and first come, first served.
multidisciplinary artist emilie payeur tones it down in two very minimal sets that focus on meditation of present moment. the sounds of the room serve as the medium as payeur uses loops and overdub to capture the moment and then create, recreate, layer and add each present moment to the next. by listening to this collection of small moments, the listener pays attention to the little sound events that would usually go unnoticed. in a second set, payeur uses the familiar dtmf tones from an old telephone to integrate everyday noises into a relaxing, meditative drone.
payeur immerses us in our own soundscape, connecting us to the noises of our lives. through awareness of the sounds in which we swim we are better able to notice their influence on us.
