I am always curious to see and hear what other Vancouver based electronic media artists are involved in. There are many interesting developments happening in Vancouver and Surrey campuses and one of the academic intersections occurred tonight at the  Surrey Art Centre. Graduate students from Emily Carr and Simon Fraser University School of Interactive Art and Technology were showing some of their work in media arts and a musical performance titled “Acoustic Illusions”. The music performance was described as:

 A series of sound works that experiment with sensory illusion of the aural field.   . . . the performers are Martin
Gotfrit, Peter Bowles and Yota Kobayashi with Mark McGregor.

Martin Gotfrit is a very accomplished electro-acoustic performer/composer and I have heard Mark McGregor play flute at New Music concerts many times before, so I thought it would be worth the long Skytrain ride to get to the event. I had never been to the Surrey Art Centre, even though it is quite close to Vancouver, but the completion of the Canada Line Skytrain, located close to my home, makes it much more convenient to travel to the ends of another municipality.

Another reason I was curious to attend the show is that Brady Marks, who taught the Pure Data classes at Vivo that I recently attended, graduated from the Surrey campus of SFU. Full of anticipation, I read through the list of events.

Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

Featuring graduate student projects by Morgan Rauscher, Miles Thorogood,
and Lois Klassen from Emily Carr University of Art + Design; Arefe
Dalvandi, Diego Maranan, and Benjamin Unterman from the School of

Scott Billings and Julio López from the University of British Columbia
Department of Art History, Fine Art and Theory.

The presentation was held in conjuction with (but not part of) The Interactive Futures Conference: Stereo 09 that gets underway Friday and I may attend more of the events. (continue reading…)
