Folie/Culture was pleased to offer the Audio Art Creation Workshop again this year, with priority registration for people who have or have had a mental health problem. The workshop was presented in collaboration with Avatar and LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE artist-run centres and led by artist Érick d’Orion.

For the fourth time, Folie/Culture introduced participants to audio art through a truly creative experience. Érick d’Orion encouraged hands-on exploration and experimentation by recording ambient sounds, introducing participants to computer sound applications, and working with “voice” material, turntables and audio processing. Participants also prepared for a final creative project. Of course, all this followed an introduction to various audio creation approaches and trends designed to illustrate the wide-ranging creative possibilities of audio art.

Érick d’Orion lives and works in Quebec City. A sound artist, musician and curator, his practice focuses on reinterpreting various concepts drawn from art history. His practice includes installation work that redefines the acoustic space and the viewer’s relationship to familiar images, and continually combining new technology and sound to create perpetually evolving works.

Wednesdays: October 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29, and November 5, 2014, 1 to 5 pm
