Description

Join Toronto-based artists/composers Germaine Liu, Anni Spadafora and Christopher Willes as they construct an evolving installation of sound sculptures and drawings that invite unusual and fun ways of listening. Using everyday objects and audio instruments, participants will be guided in an exploration of sound as a material energy, and create sounds inspired by elements of the weather. Experience a vibrant sonic environment that brings weird weather inside.
