What to expect on Friday night: one piece is going to be about fruit and bassoons, and one is going to be about dub music and sound poetry, kind of animal remixes. Reading: “Animal Remix”

Eric Powell is a multidisciplinary artist working with the interrelationship between space, place and sound. This work has found him integrating immersive soundscapes, live musical composition, theatre and dance. In addition to multi-channel electroacoustic compositions, he has created sound and music for several theatrical productions and gallery installations, including Emily Pearlman/Critical Distance's 2007 and 2008 Fringe show Free Range, and Minneapolis artist Margaret Pezalla-Granlund's 2005 installation Sub-Theory: Iceberg Sculptures.
In May of 2008, Eric installed Gastown, an interactive short-range FM piece mapping Vancouver's Gastown area into the VIVO Media Arts Centre using portable FM radios. In August of 2007, with Nigel Taylor, he presented sound canoe, a late-night floating concert under a bridge on Regina's Wascana Creek. In August of 2006 Eric presented a lo-fi cassette tape loop entitled Tides: The World Within, as a part of Crossfiring 2006, at the Claybank Brick Factory in Southwest Saskatchewan. Eric recently completed his MFA in Contemporary Art (Electroacousitic Composition) from Simon Fraser University. His research has been made possible through the generous support of the Social Science and Humanities Research Council, Vancouver New Music, VIVO Media Arts Centre, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
