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:

  1. Using your phone or digital audio recorder, record a sound from nature (45 seconds maximum) and submit by email to mythsandmirrors@gmail.com. Deadline to submit is SUNDAY, MAY 24th.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. On SATURDAY, JULY 18TH, hear the soundscape(s) and share your own artwork inspired by the sounds of nature and this project.
  5. 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 mythsandmirrors@gmail.com by Sunday, July 12th.
