This episode of Making Waves reflects on the life and work of Susan Frykberg (1954-2023). It begins with a radiophonic series of pieces she made called The Audio Birth Project and features an interview with two of Susan's closest Canadian colleagues Jim Montgomery and Tina Pearson. They reflect on Susan's life in Canada, the barriers she overcame and the impact she had on experimental sound art in Canada. The pieces heard on the show are from her Astonishing Sense CD released on the Earsay label in Vancouver.
