Fishing for Sounds: Workshop

NAISA image

Feb 13-14, 2016

Co-presented with New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA)

“Fishing for Sounds” is a community sound and radio workshop that explores the sounds of Lake Nipissing in winter.  These sounds will include the sounds of the ice, the snow, the sounds around ice shacks, and the sound of the water under the ice.

Participants will build micro-radio transmitters and contact mics.  They will record sounds with contact mics, portable flash recorders as well as with a hydrophone under the ice in Lake Nipissing, then edit the sounds to create an underwater radio soundscape in White Water Gallery.  Interested participants will also have an opportunity to work with established sound artist Darren Copeland the following week when he is installing a “Fishing for Sounds” exhibition in the gallery.

The cost of the workshop is $45. If you are a professional media artist, you may apply to WWG for a subsidy.  Register for the workshop here:
