Sound Unbound

October 24, 2009

Next month I’m privileged to be involved in Sound Unbound, a symposium on the aural avant-garde at University of Toronto Scarborough. My part in this will be a little Idle Tigers concert; happily, I’ll be performing in an art gallery at mid-day, which is so much more suitable than performing in a bar at 11.30pm.

Mostly, though, I’m really excited about the other speakers and performers who’ll be there, including text-sound performance by Gerry Shikatani, improvisation by Bonnie Jones and Chris Cogburn, a discussion of Toronto’s rich history of sound poetry by my friend (and at times my collaborator) Katherine McLeod, and a performance by Nobuo Kubota, who you can see in all his splendour in the video below.

    How long has the University of Toronto been in Scarborough? And how does it feel to be described as, “a one-man band…who plays pop art songs on keyboard and electronic beats” given that you’re nothing of the sort?

    1. There are three versions of the University of Toronto. One of them is in Scarborough (think hard now and remember that Toronto and environs was “discovered” by Yorkshiremen), one of them is in Mississauga and the (m)other one belongs to St. George.
    2. I am something of the sort, aren’t I?

    Tell us about Poland.
