Music residency II (2018-2019)

Adam Kinner and Christopher Willes

On December 13, 2018 at 5 pm 

This year, in the context of their music residency 2018-2019 at Dazibao, Adam Kinner and Christopher Willes will be creating events that rethink listening as an embodied encounter with the exhibition. In their first event they will propose a series of scores as physical trajectories, exercises, movements, and sound environments within the exhibition space. The scores will be facilitated via binaural audio recordings, in which the physical position of the listener is integral. In a sense, in order to hear the recordings as they are conceived, the audience will be invited to embody them. In this way, the project explores the score as a living scenario, and the recording process as performance.

Come join us for this second unusual experiment offering news ways of approaching art!

Adam and Christopher have been collaborating since 2013. Their projects generally work across music, choreography, print, and performance practices. In 2015 they created Listening Choir, a project that takes audiences on intensive sound/listening walks in urban spaces undergoing rapid change. Listening Choir has been performed since then in Calgary, Kitchener, Toronto and Birmingham (UK).

Dazibao thanks the artists for their generous collaboration and its members for their support.

Dazibao receives financial support from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts de Montréal, the ministère de la Culture et des Communications and the Ville de Montréal.
