Send + Receive Festival’s final concert begins with an acousmatic presentation by sound artist and composer Joseph Kamaru, aka KMRU. Resonant Links (2021) investigates our everyday state of aural immersion, positing an oceanic infrastructure of experience:
Within the complex sound specter of our environments and surroundings, sounds are always immersive, proximal, and constantly pushing through our bodies. There is a temporal flux with the sounds of our habitus and daily lives, which most often goes unnoticed and ignored. ‘Resonant Links’ investigates this aural-dual infrastructure of the urban and sea life, accentuating these two world’s auditory perspectives and dimensions and poses an impetus on our relationship with the sonic habitus.
Toronto-based group Not The Wind, Not The Flag is a roving, ecstatic conversation between two stalwarts of Canadian improvisation, Colin Fisher and Brandon Valdivia. Thorny and picturesque, spanning voices and moods, NTWNTF is a constantly metamorphosing creature and landscape at once.
FYEAR bridges improvisation and composition, electronic and acoustic instrumentation, language and abstract vocalization, and combines a strident pulse with an expansive sense of freedom. The Montréal-based group includes Jason Sharp (compositions, electronics, bass and baritone saxophones), Kaie Kellough (text, voice), Tawhida Tanya Evanson (voice), Joe Grass (pedal steel), Stefan Schneider (drums), JahSun (drums), and Kevin Yuen Kit Lo(type and visual design).
Presented in collaboration with Jazz Winnipeg and the Exchange District BIZ
