Movement-triggered Sound Environments. Live Amplified Processed Skateboard Railing - Sam McKinley & Christian Nicolay (Vancouver, Canada); Sound Drawings - Diana Burgoyne (Vancouver, Canada); Resonant Sorcery - Beno + Minnie (San Francisco, CA)

Soundwave begins its new season MOVE SOUND with a stunning sonic assault on the audiences sensory environment. Sam McKinley and Christian Nicolay sonify the urban landscape as a skateboarder and an amplified railing become a living, breathing instrument. Diana Burgoyne creates a sonic masterpiece by enveloping the audience with live drawings that activate sounds into a rising cacophonic score from the copper frames elemental reaction to graphite. Beno + Minnie combines melodies culled from tree spirits, shaken and stirred percussion and layers of vocal textures with video and projection interventions.

Soundwave is a multi-venue and multi-date festival happening over the span of two months every two years in San Francisco USA. Each season investigates a new idea in sound and invites diverse multidisciplinary artists and musicians to explore the season's theme in new and innovative directions. It challenges and inspires artists and audiences to look deeper into the sound medium and discover new connections to sound making and the sound experience. In its third season, the series has completed two successful seasons, Season 2's SURROUND>SOUND in 2006 and Season 1's FREE>SOUND in 2004. The project was recently named 'Best Sound Sculptures – Future Classic' by San Francisco Magazine's BEST of 2007 issue.
