I'll be sitting this artist panel at 8pm on 7/28/17

Intergenerational Knowledge Sharing in the Electronic Arts & Technology, in conjunction with CURRENT: A Pacific Northwest Feminist Electronic Art Symposium

 

CURRENT is a multidisciplinary, intersectional, music and electronic art symposium working with women and non-binary artists in Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest. The first iteration of the project will be a 3-day, music and arts showcase featuring events, panels, youth mentorships, and workshops, which will take place July 28th-30th, 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.

The goal of this symposium is to foster and disseminate feminist content through the cross-pollination of ideas, and intergenerational knowledge sharing. By offering free, public, all ages panels and accessible workshops, we wish to cultivate growth within the local community, and create a more equal landscape within the growing Electronic Arts ecology.

Space is limited, so please register to get your Weekend Passes or tickets to the Saturday Main Event ASAP to avoid dissapointment. Regristration for workshops also through this link.

I'm happy to be participating in this global community event this year with sound partner on this project, Jeffrey Langille.

 

World Listening Day is an annual global event held on July 18th to celebrate the listening practices of the world and the ecology of its acoustic environments. This year’s theme is “Listening to the Ground”, and honours the life and legacy of Pauline Oliveros.

 

“Sometimes we walk on the ground, sometimes on sidewalks or asphalt, or other surfaces. Can we find ground to walk on and can we listen for the sound or sounds of ground?

Are we losing ground? Can we find new ground by listening for it?”

— Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016)

 

Special Thanks: Jeffrey Langille, and the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture (KIAC)

With the theme of ENERGY, Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra were guests of residency artists Kat Wahamaa and Robi Smith at Earth Day celebrations in the City of Maple Ridge on April 23, 2016.

 

Members of VETO provided demos throughout the day, encouraging the public to experience playing a hand-built, touchless instrument, highlighting Nikola Tesla's technology and Leon Theremin's invention of the world's first electronic instrument. Finally, the group had the pleasure of presenting a new score called, The Elements, on the ACT Theatre stage for the audience.

2015 was a very busy year including: Artist talks, workshops and demos, a theremin mentorship with performance, four outdoor installation exhibitions and a performance art piece. 2015 was the International Year of Light and in conjunction, I exhibited my latest outdoor, cold wire installation, Phantom Limbs, in four major exhibitions in Vancouver Lower Mainland area festivals! I was so happy to meet and work with so many talented and innovative artists and art organizations through the year!

 

2016 is lining up with a lighter work load, stepping down from several administrative and board positions, in order to focus on a new body of work in my own practice. As per usual, I also spent the winter months planning the unfolding year and taking classes to learn new skills. Also with a lighter workload, this will give me an opportunity to attend more local events, openings and support other emerging artists in our community.
