...is creaking open again, bursting at the rusty hinges with renewed thirst for diverse sonic creations for the fourth time in Montreal. Will you be there for the rare opportunity hear the invisible undulations to tickle the ears of radio listeners?
CKUT is hosting the fourth Magic Sound Box. Modeled after a concept developed in Kingston at CFRC radio station, it proposes a full auditory exploration of the magic of radio.
This live radio transmission art show (or tell...) takes the audience inside Radioland - inside the magic sound box - highlighting the many talents of CKUT, exploring the limits of aural imagination and indulging in the intimacy of sound.
Amateur and veteran sound-makers will transform the vacant space. The plan: create an enclosed area with large swaths of fabric, turn off the lights...and make radio. The audience is inside the box, the performers are on the outside. Some of the sounds will be mixed through a quadrophonic speaker system and some will use the natural acoustics of the space, inviting our listeners to enjoy the spatial qualities of voices, instruments, field recordings and electronics.
The evening will include musical soundscapes, short stories, exploratory sonic installations and poetry, creating a series of sound art that will rest your eyes and tickle your ears.
Thursday, December 15 @ 8pm, the performance will also broadcast over the airwaves of CKUT 90.3FM (or www.ckut.ca), reaching the ears of unsuspecting audience members in their cars, bedrooms, living rooms and bathtubs.
We hope you'll be there, ears perked and mind open.
