Almost a year ago I was putting the finishing touches on my project Drum Voices for the Centre for Art Tapes Media Arts Scholarship Program. Since then, I've presented the piece at the CFAT Media Arts Scholarship Screening, the Adäka Cultural Festival in Whitehorse, Yukon and Nocturne: Art at Night in Halifax.
Drum Voices will be part of an exhibition that's opening at the Dalhousie University Art Gallery this Thursday, January 21. Curated by Will Robinson, Gleaning a Song: The Singing Voice as Artifact in Media Art "is a compilation of CFAT members’ works that distinctly incorporate, explore, conjure, or manipulate the singing voice in “song” as tenor for cultural production, existential memoire, conceptual and technical experimentation, and/or cultural communication. The program includes works by Lindsay Dobbin; Lisa Lipton; Derek Charke, Janice Jackson, and Lukas Pearse; Tom Sherman and Jan Pottie; and Emily Vey Duke & Cooper Battersby."
Find more details here about the other two exhibitions that will be opening at 7 p.m. on January 21: "Why are we saving All these artist publications + Other Galleries stuffs?" and Eyelevel Reshelving Initiative 7.
Finally, I've decided to make Drum Voices available on my Bandcamp for purchase.
