Round Table for Sound Window


Round Table

26.09 — / 2015

2 p.m.


Saturday, September 26, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Sporobole is pleased to invite you to listen to the works and meet the artists that have taken part in Sound Window 2015. The round-table will be hosted by the curator, Hélène Prévost, and will be comprised of composers France Jobin and Chantale Laplante, as well as special guests Chantal Dumas (who created the first work for Sound Window) and Nicolas Bernier, curator of the 2016 edition. The event will include a visit of the spatialisation laboratory, a presentation of the diffusion device by Frédéric Dutertre, and artist talks by the artists-in-residence. Free admission.

Sporobole launched a new program that provides a curator the opportunity to gather sound artists around a curatorial approach and concepts about the Sound Window diffusion device. During a three-week residency, each artist has unlimited access to the sound laboratory and develops a project which will be broadcast and discussed during the round table.

The Sound Window is a permanent system for sound projection on the façade of Sporobole, along the sidewalk on Albert Street. Made up of sixteen loudspeakers, it makes it possible to enter into direct contact with passers-by making their way to the above-ground parking garage next door to Sporoble on city’s main street, Wellington. The linear arrangement of the sixteen speakers and their position at the geometrical interface between Sporobole and the thoroughfare make this new outdoor sound gallery a singular platform for sound spatialisation and the projection of works of sound art.
