SOUND TRAVELS INDOOR INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS
July 22-Sept 2 Sundays 2-6 pm PWYC (recommended $5)
St. Andrew-by-the-Lake Church
Note: August 12th includes a concert at 2pm (Cost is $10)
Two interactive sound installations will be included in the indoor portion of Sign Waves 2007 at St. Andrew-by-the-Lake on Centre Island. Lori Beckstead and David Rose's "The Whispering Tree" is an interactive sound sculpture that absorbs the sound around it, and then retransmits those sounds. Secrets told to the tree become part of a continuous soundscape emitted by the tree, but the secrets are only partly revealed, as secrets are veiled and mixed together. Over time, the tree becomes a wise old repository of all that has happened around it, containing and sometimes revealing all that it has learned. Also included on an interactive computer are the Toronto Island Sound Map (Don Sinclair and Darren Copeland), Around Radio Roadmovies (Chantal Dumas, Christian Calon and Don Sinclair) as well as a Listening Gallery allowing gallery goers to listen to past Sound Travels performances while viewing the "Sound Travels Documents" Photo Exhibit by Stefan Rose.
