A Community Curated, Built, & Performed Musico-Art Project: A Colossal Theremin Room
Installation & Workshop: Sept 30th – Oct 4th
Radio frequency oscillators? Variable Capacitors? It’s as Sci-Fi as it sounds! The eerie and ethereal tones of early cinematic soundtracks such as those of Spellbound, The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Thing will be brought to life on a collossal scale at this year’s Pop Montreal Symposium and Art Pop headquarters:
ESPACE RÉUNION – 6600 Hutchison, north of Beaubien
David Beaulieu and Christian Pelletier, the creators of the portable speaker suit worn by Patrick Watson during the Montreal International Jazz Fest (http://video.msn.com/video.aspx?mkt=fr-CA&brand=sympatico&vid=7180e7ea-c870-4a2a-bed6-149537034fca), envision a room of 16 antennas dispersed to create an interactive symphony of psychedelic sounds played by bodies in movement. This improvised and free-form communal experience is dependent upon the bodies present, but also upon funding from the community at large.
The Pop team and theremin creators have only 30 days to raise the 5000$ required to pay for the equipment, and thanks to Kickstarter.com, a free, invite-only way to fund ideas and endeavors, they can offer you a range of exclusive prIzes in exchange for your support of this mind-blowing endeavour!
