A complete schedule of the Sounds Like… Audio Art Festival can be downloaded here


PAVED Arts is proud to present an evening of sound with the experimental Montreal based collective minibloc, comprised of sound-artists Anne-Francoise Jacques and Nicolas Dion. This presentation is the culmination of a month long residency in which minibloc conducted a workshop series with a number of Saskatoon based audio artists. At the Sounds Like… festival minibloc and workshop participants Terry Billings, Joel Carignan, Constantine Katsiris, Dallas Kruszelnicki, Tanjalee Kuhl and Jon Vaughn will present a series of performances that reflect the collaborative and experimental work that they have produced over the course of the residency.

The evening will commence with a special ‘live’ presentation of Dallas Kruszelnicki’s “Forrest Man” as a part of the Toon’s Kitchen: The Saskatoon Screening Room Series.

Minibloc is an ongoing collaborative project shared between Nicolas Dion and Anne-Françoise Jacques (Montreal). Minibloc uses amplification of objects, small electronic circuits and recontextualisation of field recordings as the material to create live hands-on sound performances, sound installations and radio art pieces. The duo often perform live and have participated in many festivals including Club Transmediale (Berlin), Send & Receive (Winnipeg), Mutek (Montréal), Festival des Musiques de Création (Saguenay) and Rencontres de musiques spontanées (Rimouski). Their first sound installation entitled “Oreilles”, a germinal project that has provided the impetus for much of their current research and production, was curated by Eric Mattson and presented at Centre Clark (Montreal) in 2009 and at Galerie Séquence (Chicoutimi) in 2010.

PAVED Arts acknowledges the support of our members, volunteers and partners, and of our principal funders: Canada Council for the Arts, Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture, SaskLotteries, the City of Saskatoon and the National Film Board of Canada.
