Lesley Flanigan: Resonances
Lesley Flanigan presents Resonances, a new performance for voice, speakers, electronic tone, and the resonance between.
The performance and installation feature a configuration of small wooden speakers that act as a choral ensemble staged in the centre of the space. Large, full-range amplifiers are positioned in the four corners of the gallery, wrapping the space in a moving wash of pure electronic tone. Inside the installation, the audience will experience a series of compositions that act as a meditation on how we listen. The work considers how we hear electronic tone and the fragility of the voice, as well as the physical qualities of amplification.
The performance takes place on October 21 at 7 PM.
