Gordon Monahan: “Sound Art & Installations”
Friday, November 17th @ 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Gordon Monahan’s works for piano, loudspeakers, video, kinetic sculpture, and computer-controlled sound environments span various genres from avant-garde concert music to multimedia installation and sound art. As a composer and sound artist, he juxtaposes the quantitative and qualitative aspects of natural acoustical phenomena with elements of media technology, environment, architecture, popular culture, and live performance.
In Kingston for a performance at the Isabel of his acclaimed music theatre collaboration “Dollhouse” with choreographer-dancer Bill Coleman, Monahan will talk about his work in the context of sound installations.
Monahan is a 2013 recipient of the Governor-General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts, and runs Electric Eclectics, an annual festival of experimental music at his farm in Meaford, Ontario.
