Pamela Hart is a musician, audio engineer and community organizer. She first began singing as a young child in church, then spent her teens and early twenties performing in multiple rock bands, noise bands and folk projects in Otepoti, Aotearoa’s (Dunedin, NZ) infamous art-punk scene. In 2008 Pamela moved to Montreal to study at the School of Recording Arts Canada, and then worked as a touring audio engineer with Canadian projects Think About Life, Moonface, You Say Party and Mozarts Sister (Cecile believe) travelling across Europe, Scandinavia, The UK and North America. She regularly performed as a vocalist and guitarist making a record with her band Ledges, Blast and later joined Mozart’s Sister as a Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. In 2014 Pamela founded Montreal’s The Forever Chorus, an all voices choir with hundreds of members participating during its five year run. Pamela now works with the National Equitable Library Service creating accessible audiobooks, as well as with her own audio production company, Tender Audio. She now lives on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’Kmaq, Mi’kmaki / Nova Sco tia.
Lou Sheppard is an interdisciplinary artist working in audio, performance and installation based practice. They have exhibited in Canada and internationally, including in Paved’s 2019 residency and exhibition Lines of Flight. Sheppard received the Emerging Atlantic Artist Award in 2017, and has twice been longlisted for the Sobey Art Award (2018, 2020) receiving an international residency award in 2018. Sheppard’s artistic research reflects their background in critical theory and social activism. They are interested in languages, both as systems of notation and communica tion, as well as systems that structure and enact power. By looking to authoritative texts like taxonomies, environ mental data, diagnostic criteria, and government policy, their work attempts to make these systems and structures of power legible. Using processes of metaphor, translation, semiotic shift, and close reading, their work is evidenced through written, graphic and visual scores. The performance of these scores often leads them to collaborate with communities and with other artists, including musicians, visual artists and performing artists. Sheppard lives on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’Kmaq, Mi’kmaki / Nova Scotia.
