The Concordia Electroacoustic Studies Student Association (CESSA) present's a workshop with Lisa Hall sharing the CRiSAP online exhibition Acts of Air: Reshaping the urban sonic

This workshop is part of the Sustainable Sound series by CESSA including Sonic Rupture talk by Jordan Lacey and artist talk by Pamela Z.

After a short talk about the exhibition, 10 participants in this workshop will each enact one of these 14 artworks outside in their local urban environment and then share their experiences in a group discussion with a wider audience.

About Acts of Air:

'Acts of Air' invites you to reshape your urban sonic present by enacting 14 sound works directly in urban spaces. Each work proposes a sounding out, a performance, a site specific listening or engagement in the streets, under bridges, by water fountains and extractor fans. They offer a variety of means to explore and interrogate our cities of sound.
While the urban is a seemingly fixed and impermeable place, the urban sonic is in the air, performed and enacted each day as we ride the buses, press the buttons and talk to one another. With these vibrations we can choose to re-voice, re-sound, re-hear and rebuild the urban sonic in new ways.
