…Into the Magic Sound Box….
Live Radio Art Transmission Performance: an hour of Storytelling, Music and Sound Art
This live radio transmission art show (or tell…) takes the audience inside Radioland - inside the magic sound box - highlighting the many talents of CKUT, exploring the limits of aural imagination and indulging in the intimacy of sound.
Amateur and veteran sound-makers will transform a rectangular loft, a few blocks from CKUT. The plan: create an enclosed area with large swaths of multi-coloured fabric, turn off the lights…and make radio. The audience is inside the box, the performers are on the outside. Some of the sounds will be mixed through a quadrophonic speaker system and some will use the natural acoustics of the space, inviting our listeners to enjoy the spatial qualities of voices, instruments, field recordings and electronics.
The evening will include musical soundscapes, short stories, documentary, exploratory sonic installations, poetry and whatever other radio forms you can think of, creating a series of sound art that will rest your eyes and tickle your ears.
The performance will also broadcast over the airwaves of CKUT (and on ckut.ca/listen), reaching the ears of unsuspecting audience members in Montreal and beyond in their cars, bedrooms, living rooms and bathtubs? Tune in THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21st @ 8pm
