Produced by Darren Copeland.

Alexis O'Hara performs her work The City of Sighs and discusses her live performance practice with Darren Copeland. The City of Sighs is a piece for solo vocals and live electronic processing. In it O'Hara randomly selects a poster-sized cue card that serves as both a cue for changing the sections of her performance and as a trigger for emotional states associated with the act of sighing that are explored in each section of the piece. The performance was recorded at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River, Canada on July 28, 2018.

This monthly program is produced by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA). The program features selections from the NAISA archives and is produced by Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director. 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.
