IMPROVISING SPACE: IMPROVISING IDENTITY
Outdoor Guerilla Sound Art Performances by Ellen Waterman & Wanderology
Outdoors on Toronto Island
August 8, 2008, 7pm and August 9, 2008 1pm & 7pm FREE
Improvisation is a profoundly everyday activity. We are all constantly interacting with our environment, playing off of tiny shifts in perception to make choices that affect the play of movement and sound around us. Most of this dynamic activity goes unnoticed. Four improvisers (using flute, percussion, and voice) will play a series of solos, duos, and trios on Toronto Island. Each performance is a sensitive articulation of the micro-ecology of that specific moment in time/space. Building on the sensitivity to environment and sound fostered by such composer/philosophers as Pauline Oliveros and R. Murray Schafer, our musical interventions seek to cause a tiny disturbance - a startled recognition - an acute sense of aliveness.
