PIETRO SAMMARCO, an editor of the online audio zine SPOOX, solicits the help of the audience to record the sound of a crowd pictured in a found video clip. The finished recording will be included in the next issue of Spoox. CYNTHIA FLEUR BRONAUGH, a Vancouver-based artist with a background in art history and administration, debuts MESSAGE, a short slide show of images and text which comment on some underlying and misguided advice, words of wisdom, deep thoughts and self affirmations culled from media sources.

Please note that this work was initially presented as a slide show with accompanying audio components.

ROXANNA BENNETT, a non-fiction writer and artist-educator living outside of Toronto, reads a short series of found poems via skype, sourced from an ongoing text message conversation with TARA-MICHELLE ZINIUK about voice, identity and the act of changing a pronoun to radically alter meaning. Roxanna’s debut poetry collection, The Uncertainty Principle, is now available from Tightrope Books.

Please note that this clip presents an introduction and first poem excerpt from a longer skype presentation/reading of approximately 20 minutes.

FAUX FANTASY, the moody, synth-driven pop duo of VANESSA SORENSON & BEN WILSON, deliver a performance inspired by Austra, Trust, Com Truise, John Maus, Helmut Lachenmann, Man Ray, venetian blinds, indoor plants, Fujifilm Superia ISO 400 and air conditioning (their debut EP, Bouquet, was released in July of 2014). BARRY DOUPÉ, a Vancouver-based artist primarily working with computer animation, reads a script from an in-progress work.
