Making Waves: A Conversation with Don Ritter about "O telephone" (Audio)

Oct 14, 2023
Produced by New Adventures in Sound Art.

Host Darren Copeland talks with Canadian interactive media artist Don Ritter for this episode of Making Waves, which is also available as a video podcast on the NAISATube YouTube channel. Don Ritter's sound installation "O telephone" is currently being shown at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River Canada. Ritter and Copeland discuss the use of sound in Ritter's interactive media works since the 1990's and how "O telephone" is a much different piece than his other works. The installation was originally made in 2007 for six telephones and eight speakers. The version at NAISA uses just one telephone along with the 8 speakers.
