As ever, send + receive cel­e­brates the fields of sound art and exper­i­men­tal music, bridg­ing the work of Cana­di­an artists and their inter­na­tion­al peers in focused pro­grams held through­out Winnipeg. 

While broad­ly con­ceived around the theme of feed­back — acoustic, hap­tic, and dia­log­ic — no remark could sum­ma­rize the range and depth of this year’s artists and their respec­tive approach­es to sound. Sev­er­al per­form­ers use audio feed­back as an instru­ment, tak­ing son­ic mea­sure of the spaces in which they appear and ele­vat­ing the noise imma­nent to their mate­ri­als. Oth­ers demon­strate a sup­ple recep­tiv­i­ty to their musi­cal tools and fel­low impro­vis­ers, on the mod­el of a spon­ta­neous com­mu­ni­ca­tion. In every case some­thing absolute­ly sin­gu­lar tran­spires before the ears, involv­ing the lis­ten­er in the social cir­cuit­ry of live performance. 

It’s an hon­our to present these artists in Win­nipeg, and to par­tic­i­pate in the ongo­ing his­to­ry of a series that has been such an impor­tant part of my lis­ten­ing life over the years, we hope to see you there.
