PC 13: ERIN

EBio: Erin is a media artist informed by sound as a phenomenological experience. Using bio-sensors as a sort of interface her work explores emotional sincerity both as a composer and in videogame design. Her work is cerebral and politically engaged, but is nonetheless insistently physical and grounded in the body. Recording Notes: There is a good deal of rain in this recording. Too, Erin has the rich vocal timbre of an ASMR-tist so those textures combine to make this a pleasant interview to listen to, especially in the cavernous converted factory of Montreal’s Eastern Bloc gallery space where we took the recording. When I asked Erin to offer me an experiment upon which to base this episode’s bridging music she shared with me a dream she had of spitting, screaming, singing crystals. So you’ll hear my attempt to sound design that dream. I had assistance from Aug and their crystal collection, as source material for the sound design. You’ll also hear an excerpt from Erin’s 3rd perso...

PC 12: MARIA

EBio: Maria is a New York-based abstract turntablist and multidisciplinary artist from Peru by way of Houston, Texas. She has pioneered a singular style of improvisation on the turntable involving perfect and destroyed vinyl and styli. She is an author, a teacher, a DJ, and an outspoken critic of the institutions of fine art of which she finds herself, against all odds, a part-- this latter characteristic is amusingly exemplified in her recent work in painting, which she expands upon in this episode. Recording Notes: This interview was recorded at Cafe le Gamin in Maria’s rapidly gentrifying Greenpoint neighbourhood. We met for lunch while Maria was briefly home in New York between stints in Italy, Germany, Istanbul and the Rauschenberg Captiva Residency. The chance, or accident, so fundamental to Maria’s practice turns up here in the shape of the clatter of cutlery, the city’s drony din, and the cafe’s regular custom. I want to warmly welcome Cale Weir back to the pod, who joine...

PC 11: KENT

EBio: Kent is a multidisciplinary artist of Cree ancestry working in painting, performance, installation and video. His painting seeks to overturn the settler painterly tradition through application of the same, and by authorizing through art history otherwise suppressed narratives of indigeneity, while his performance work lays bare sexual colonialism with his partly Cher-inspired alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle. Recording Notes: This interview was recorded live, as part of George Brown College’s 26th Annual Labour Fair, which brought artists and activists in to the college community to speak to this year’s theme: Revolution and Resistance. The audience who joined us for the talk put some questions to the artist toward the end of our conversation. Bridging into this section is the track Dance to Miss Chief, produced for a video by the same name featuring Miss Chief Eagle Testickle. The song heralded the artist’s late arrival to the event. This was entirely my fault, as I sen...

PC 10: FAN

EBio: Fan is a poet, lecturer, teacher, aesthete and a Barthesian torchbearer of pleasuring in the text and of discerning the throw of desire beyond the bounds of what can be written or uttered. Recording Notes: Fan’s interview and poems were recorded in my living room studio. Cut into my brief interview with the poet is a recording of an improvisational collaboration between Fan and multimedia poet David (Jhave) Johnston. Apart from expanding the documentary sprawl of this project by including poetry read by the author, it also gives evidence of my ongoing attempt to understand sound. Particularly in its relationship to text and the timbres of the various physical human hollows (skull, chest, etc.) Seems relevant to report here findings from the prescient Fred Moten: “The unthinkable is a tone.” Links: Artist: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/abolishedbauble/?hl=en contact Fan for creative swaps: fanwu2@gmail.com Poetry: Thom Gill's Now & Neverending: http://www.blankchequepr...

PC 09: CAROL + KARL

EBio: Carol Conde + Karl Beveridge are Toronto-based artists whose practice has impacted the arts ecology here and elsewhere, in ways that could not easily be overstated. Their work consistently takes up themes of labour, social justice, representation, and the power and possibility of art to make meaningful change. They have worked closely with workers, unions, activists, and a range of social justice oriented arts collectives and community organizations. Their work appropriates figures of Western Canonical art and weaves together staged photographic images of actual artists, activists, actors, and workers to expose issues including: gender inequality in the home, the workplace and in the artist’s studio, the global water crisis, the 2008 crash, and Canada’s shameful relationship to resource extraction and indigenous rights. Apart from this, they’ve helped to organize artist unions, to establish the Worker’s Heritage and Arts Centre in Hamilton and they were founding members of ...

PC 08: ALEX

EBio: Alexandra Mackenzie is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes visual and installation art, composition and live musical performance. She lives and works in Montreal. Her project Petra Glynt combines politically charged lyrics and live drumming, with digital modulation and intervention. A through-line in her visual and recorded art might be her itinerant exploratory attention to detail and texture: searching out those worlds within worlds. Her new record ‘This Trip’ has just been released on Vibe Over Method, and it makes an excellent soundtrack to today’s political climate. Recording Notes: This interview was recorded at Alex’s former Bloor street apartment and home studio in downtown Toronto. In keeping with Alex’s habit, we left the windows open: along with the traffic you can at points hear one of Alex’s former roommates practicing guitar. Still uncertain what the track is that interrupted our interview from the trunk of someone’s car in the street below....

PC 07: ADRIENNE

EBio: Adrienne Crossman is an artist, curator and educator, currently pursuing her MFA at the University of Windsor. In her art practice Adrienne explores queerness, cultural memory, childhood objects, internet marginalia and digital aesthetic in physical spaces. Her curatorial and educational practices are oriented toward community building and accessibility in the digital arts. Recording Notes: This interview was recorded at the kitchen table in my home. In her earlier work Adrienne used glitch and datamoshing techniques as part of her video making. I have experimented with a glitch / data-mosh aesthetic in producing this episodes sound design. Adrienne wanted to share a note about this recording: in referencing Daniele Dennis, she suggested the artist had used sand or sugar in her performance. In fact, the performance made use of rice, which, Adrienne indicate, is significant to the performance. Links: Artist: Artist's Website: http://www.adriennecrossman.com/ Instagram: https://w...

PC 06: JORDAN

EBio: Jordan Tannahill is a multi/inter-disciplinary artist working in text, image, performance, video, film, theatre and increasingly dance. He was cofounder of Toronto's integral Videofag-- a storefront performance, gallery and alternative art space-- and his book, Theatre of the Unimpressed: In Search of Vital Drama, explores boredom and liveness in contemporary theatre and performance in Canada. He is the recipient of a Governor General Award and several Doras. Jordan's VR performance Draw Me Close recently showed at the Venice Biennale, and a book on Videofag edited by William Ellis and Jordan was just released by BookThug; his new play Declarations will premiere on Canadian stage January 2018, to be followed later in the year by the release of his debut novel Liminal. Recording Notes: This interview was recorded at 187 Augusta, in Kensington Market-- the former location of Videofag-- shortly before the shuttering of this erstwhile Toronto institution, and Jordan's leaving Toron...

PC 05: CAT & JON

EBio: Cat Bluemke and Jonathan Carroll work together as executive members of the new media business art collective Tough Guy Mountain. In her individual practice, Cat works in installation, visual art, performance and textile, often contrasting the art economy with the greater economy. She is currently pursuing her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Jon produces visuals, software, video games and makes music under the moniker People Tanning. He currently works as an educator and freelancer. It was on Jon's advice that I decided to turn the art / work project into a podcast. Look for Tough Guy Mountain's virtual reality video game being released in November 2017 through Trinity Square Video's upcoming V/Art project. Recording Notes: This interview was recorded at the former Tough Guy Mountain headquarters in the rectory space of St. George the Martyr's Anglican Church, nestled between the church itself-- the venue home of Toronto's Music Gallery-- and the former site o...
