Produced by New Adventures in Sound Art.
On today’s edition of Making Waves we feature interviews with Bentley Jarvis and Teresa Connors. David Arthur met up online with Bentley Jarvis over rural internet connections to discuss Jarvis’ sound sculpture Constant Plancks which has been on exhibit outdoors at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River, Canada. The sculpture consists of two tall cedar structures with built-in loudspeakers that respond to passing traffic with music based on the mathematical concept of Planks Constant. In the second half Darren Copeland interviews Teresa Connors about her approach to gathering data from the east coast of Newfoundland and using it to transform images and sounds in a series of audio-visual non-linear works. One of those is called From the Edge, which will open on September 24th during the SOUNDplay festival at NAISA.

NAISA is a South River-based Canadian organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental sound art. The objectives of NAISA are to foster awareness and understanding locally, as well as nationally and internationally, in the cultural vitality of experimental sound art in its myriad forms of expression.
