TransAlta Arts Barns
BEAMS at the interFEAR Arts Festival
The artists of the Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS) will add their otherworldly visions to this year's interFEAR Arts Festival. Five acts will perform in the lobby of the TransAlta Arts Barns free of charge while the spooky goings on of interFEAR continue in the other stages.
Wayne DeFehr's Necropolis uses modular sound software to transform white noise into secrets passed by ghosts. Gene Kosowan's Whyte After Dark is a live electronic accompaniment over a soundscape backdrop of a recorded adventure on Whyte Avenue after hours. The Big Bang Theory by Bill Damur portrays the first few minutes of the universe in live acoustic sound. Clarinetist Don Ross will be joined by Thom Golub, bass, and Jeremy Coughlin, electronics along with dancer Kathy Metzger-Corriveau to explore longing, loss and the underworld in Your Call/My Dad's Story/ Persephone's Creatures. Phil Jagger and friends will twin fear and beauty in The littlest fears. Mark Nerenberg's Piece for clarinet and electronics uses cutting edge Max/Msp software to riff on pitch, dynamics, rhythm, density, and form.
The acts run in half hour sets from 6:30 to 10:00 pm on Sunday, October 30 at the TransAlta Arts Barns (10330-84 Ave).
