Songs of Ice
January 17 10:00 AM - March 30, 2020 4:00 PM

Songs of Ice brings together the work of Michael Waterman and Jesse Stewart, two Ottawa-based interdisciplinary artists who have a shared passion for sonic exploration. In this interactive sound sculpture, they explore the sonic properties of ice in both solid and melting forms while creating a two-way interaction between an outdoor geodesic dome and an indoor exhibition area at NAISA. Elements of the work will be developed through a two-day workshop with students from the South River Public School. Visitors are invited to make music with the delicate ice instruments, but please be gentle. For added enjoyment there is Glacialis, a video documenting performances by Jesse Stewart using ice instruments.
