Tina and BBMC members will be presenting workshops and performances as part of this year's Sound Symposium – Saturday April 14th – Workshop with Tina Pearson, Liz Solo and the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse at 1 PM. Performance at 3 PM. Both events take place at the LSPU Hall. Talk to us!

In ancient times, communities regularly gathered together to make collective songs ward off fears, entice beneficial outcomes and to generally make sense of life and its changes through ritual and creative play. We invite you to gather with us to renew that practice in these a-changing networked times. Tell us your fears and dreams, what makes you happy or sad, about today's networked technology and how it is embedded in your life. 

We will create a set of hybrid Songs rooted in St John's, inspired by contributions from far and wide ... and perform them in a suitably hybrid and networked form.
Black Bag Media Collective's artist in residence, Tina Pearson, along with BBMC founders Liz Solo, Mike Kean and Marcel Levandier are the hosts and facilitators of this investigation. True to the theme of the project, the Techno Dream and Nightmare song cycle will be made using a mix of readily available audio technologies - from human voices, rocks, sticks and acoustic instruments, to electronic instruments, digital instruments, iPhones, and virtual instruments. Participants and performers will be connected through readily available networked technologies - telephone, email, Skype, Second Life and streaming. Participation is open to anyone wanting to participate in St John's or online. The performance will be co-ordinated at the Black Bag Media Collective studio in St John's, Newfoundland and will culminate in a live event at the LSPU Hall Second Space on Friday July 20th at 8 PM.

This project made possible thanks to the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Media Arts Section. - u suck!
