Making Waves: Chantal Dumas, Sonia Paço-Rocchia
In this month's Making Waves, Brian Connolly speaks with Chantal Dumas and Sonia Paço-Rocchia, both of whom are featured artists at the Sound Travels event that has been taking place this week at the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium. Brian speaks to both sound artists about their journey from their earliest involvements in sound art to their creative approaches today. Chantal outlines the influence of geology in the presentation of her work 'Nazca Plate', while Sonia discusses her piece 'Scies' in which the resonance of saw blades and other industrial tools is explored.
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.
