This concert will include Canadian composers who have been exploring this form of notation as well as improvisations by the Ethos Collective.
Concrete Scores is an exhibit exploring the interactions between media. This concert will include a reading of the visual art as a musical score.

Not All There Project Description 
Not All There is a series of sound art works presented in succession over a six-month period from January until July 2014. These works all deal with music (obliquely or directly) and absence (as a device or concept). The title is a reference to this absence but also to sound’s non-materiality, while also being a play on the perception of cognitive dysfunction in oneself or others. Many of the works investigate ideas of what “there” might be and what it means to be both “there” and “not all there.”

Jean Routhier Une Suite de Temps-morts: Nelson_RY

Multi media artist Camille Norment often uses the notion of cultural psychoacoustics as both an aesthetic and conceptual framework. She defines this term as the examination of socio-cultural phenomena through sound and music, and the contexts in which they are produced.

Jean Routhier has a sound-based practice that comprises soundwalks, manipulated field recordings, acousmatic works, live performances, and installations.


Active since 2009, Audio Lodge is a Canadian sound art collective based in London Ontario dedicated to the aural exploration of cultural systems and their unexpected analogues in the environment.
