Hope all the Canadians reading this had a good long weekend. I managed to squeeze in a couple friends-giving dinner parties and spent a good part of yesterday painting the interior of a beloved local DIY space. Forget those old-school colonial celebrations and give thanks for things that are meaningful in yr community – and give back if you can.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Every Wednesday in October from 12-2pm tune into If You Got Ears for a very special residency curated by local audio/visual artist Estraven Lupino-Smith. Using a variety of angles to explore the intersections between nature and technology, they’ll be crafting soundscapes from long form drones, field recordings, and everything in between. In Lupino-Smith’s own words:
This residency will focus on drone/doom/experimental work and feature samples from animals that I have recorded or that are part of the Macauley Library. Expect some guests and live performances, where we will be drawing from this public archive for inspiration. The sound work I present will engage with the ideas of nature and technology, the way our interactions with the so-called “natural world” are technologically mediated, and that there are many amazing, wonderful and awe inspiring sounds made in nature.
