Imagination Cinema: A hands-on exploration of the tools for mixing music and words, hosted by Ian Ferrier.
The workshop will explore the aesthetics, tools, requirements, value and limits of works that mix spoken word and sound.
Ian Ferrier is one of the core writer/performers in the North American performance literature scene. His work is well-known across Canada, New York and Europe. Rooted in poetry, his live performances are a haunting blend of acoustic guitar, choir; whispered voice, and the trancelike music of a band called Pharmakon. His signature is the quiet, compelling voice at the centre of every piece.
