Rio Houle – sound artist, performer, and student will share some of their favourite music in a relaxed, friendly session. Come and simply enjoy the listening experience, or talk about the music. Each session will include rejuvenating deep listening warm-ups, aimed at getting our ears active, receptive, and ready for sound. For more free listening and participatory events in May and June, visit our website., About the artist: Rio Houle is an Indigenous sound artist, performer, and student. "Sound gives me a way to ask questions, and hopefully in searching for an answer to them, come to an understanding in some small way.", About the event: "I thought of curating this collection around a theme or focus, but the act of searching for music that I could show people offered a joy that I have greatly missed. What I have to present is less of a mix and more of a report of artists, practices, and sounds I found that excited me. Everything forms a coherence of it's own, so if anything this is a snapshot of who I was and what I was drawn to when compiling this session.", Admission is free, but registration is required. Donations are welcome to help support our programming. Masks are recommended. More info : newmusicedmonton.ca…. Event Details. Location: Co Lab 9641 102A Ave NW, Edmonton , Edmonton, AB
