Delve into music and sound art in community-engaged arts and performance – what has been done, what might be done, new ideas and collaborative approaches, how to let untrained participants into your composition process, while still ending up with an exciting musical outcome for the composer and audience. The day will include presentations, panels, discussions, audio-video samples and mini musical/sound explorations; and an evening showcase. Activities will also connect to Jumblies’ East Scarborough residency and exploration of themes, imagery and text from Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale.
Presenters will include: Juliet Palmer, (composer and interdisciplinary artist who has composed with sewing machines and boxers), Wende Bartley (composer and sound artist – creator of live and electro-acoustical score for Jumblies Once A Shoreline in 2004), Martin van de Ven (Clarinetist, music educator, composer and Klezmer music expert), Eric Schwindt (composer, community artist, rock musician and founding director of the Parkdale Singers), Adam Scime (composition graduate student at U.ofT.’s Faculty of Music), Chris Wilson (multi-faceted musician, music creator and ethnomusicologist, who has worked over the years with several Raucous Caucus companies), Julia Churchill (singer-songwriter and Jumblies’ 2011 Metcalf Intern). Other music creators are invited to bring samples of community-engaged work to share over the dinner break (please let us know if interested).
