Location: McBride Park Fieldhouse/Aberthau Mansion and surrounding environs
Organized By: Village Vancouver (Ross Moster) and
LocoMotoArt's Miles Thorogood
A hands-on community arts based workshop and public event presented by Village Vancouver in collaboration with Aberthau artist-in-residence LocoMotoArt. Re-creation aims to engage the dialectic of modern urban permaculture and the absence of the vibrant sounds of animal species once inhabiting such spaces.
A re-creation of those sounds will be achieved through a distributed sound emitting system seamlessly woven into the physical and aural fabric of a local park space. Led by LocoMotoArt artist Miles Thorogood, LMA artist Phil Thompson will instruct participants in recording techniques and then sounds will be obtained through a field trip to Aberthau Mansion and Jericho Beach, where we will explore less urbanized spaces. Using 3 sets of recording equipment, groups of up to 4 participants will record what they consider to be important sounds in an environment to a permaculture.
We will then return to McBride Park, where we’ll process the recordings and install them, and the public will then be invited to experience our sound installation (see separate event below.)
Registration: Pre-registration is required. Limit 12 participants. RSVP to Refirstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring your own water, lunch and snacks.
Followed by a public event from 5-9:30 pm:
RE-CREATION Sound Installation
Re-creation aims to engage the dialectic of modern urban permaculture and the absence of the vibrant sounds of animal species once inhabiting such spaces. After the afternoon workshop and field trip (see above event), participants will then return to McBride Park, where they’ll process the recordings and install them, with the public invited to experience their sound installation.
FREE. No registration is required for the evening installation.
Both activities are part of the Sustenance Festival.
