As the world slows and quiets during this time of physical distancing, we’re able to listen more intently. Step outside and into nature – what do you hear?
Myths and Mirrors, in partnership with Coalition for a Livable Sudbury and artists EMILIO PORTAL, WILL MORIN, and DARLENE, invite you to take part in a virtual art project exploring art, sound, and collaborative creation as we celebrate Mother Earth and the changing of the seasons.
HOW TO TAKE PART:
Using your phone or digital audio recorder, record a sound from nature (45 seconds maximum) and submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to submit is SUNDAY, MAY 24th. Then join us online SATURDAY, JUNE 6th, 1-3PM, for a virtual workshop with EMILIO PORTAL and WILL MORIN as we share and weave sound to create a collaborative soundscape. On SATURDAY, JUNE 13th, 1-3PM, join DARLENE for a vocalization/choral workshop to explore and play with sound so you can add your “voice” to the project.
- On SATURDAY, JULY 18TH, hear the soundscape(s) and share your own artwork inspired by the sounds of nature and this project.
- Artists are also invited to submit works of art – a painting or drawing, a piece of writing, photography, or even dance – inspired by the sounds of nature and/or the collaborative soundscape(s) (available below or online HERE). Submissions can be shared in the Facebook event page or submitted by email to email@example.com by Sunday, July 12th.
