During my residency at the English Harbour Arts Centre in July 2018, I will be undertaking an experimental project collecting an archive of local sounds and personal recordings. It's an honour for me to be spending time listening and singing with my father's ancestors on the Bonavista Peninsula.
I will be offering a Found Sound Workshop during my residency. Exploring sounds in and around the English Harbour Arts Centre, we will find, make and record sounds together. This could be birds, waves, footsteps, creaking or conversation, it's up to us! This afternoon will also include an opportunity to sit, talk and share stories and experiences about what sound means to you - maybe that's a story about a song that is important to you, a noise that characterizes your community, the sounds that remind you of someone, somewhere or something. All are welcome to come and try something new and to share your stories of what sounds are meaningful to you.
