The Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS) is bringing another show of dynamic sound experimentation to this year's The Works Art and Design Festival.
The program features works by four local artists, and some short surprises. Clarinetist Don Ross' Persephone's Creatures combines taped computer-modulated bass clarinet sounds with live clarinet, live flute by Bill Damur (who also curates) and interactive video by Philip Jagger. His Paraphrase on Malgré les apparence mixes live clarinet with a sound track and video by Athens artists Kostas Varotsis and Peter Salapatas.
Jeremy Coughlin will perform Theta State, an experimental ambient musical project with rock roots.
Philip Jagger's this is the sound your city makes uses software to generate sounds from his pictures of the city and combines them with ambient sound, a live flute player, keyboardist and singer, dance, video, poetry and more. Sound creates images and images create sound.
Local experimentalist flEm will unveil a gleefully scathing audio-art
presentation called Penetron Adult oriented.
The show starts at 8:30 pm on Sunday, June 22 in the Design Pavilion (10230 Jasper Avenue). Tickets are $5 in advance at TIX on the Square 420-1757, Blackbyrd Myoozik 439-1273 or $5 for BEAMS members and $7 for non-members at the door. Cash bar.
