    More Soundportraits by Jørgen Teller - Making Waves

    More Soundportraits by Jørgen Teller - Making Waves

    This month on Making Waves we continue listening to more in the Soundportraits series by Jørgen Teller from Denmark. Soundportraits are impromptu pieces made through one-on-one chance encounters. Jorgen Teller was stationed inside a tent at a different location each day. He would record sounds made by the visitors and then create spontaneous electronic compositions from the sounds he recorded creating a musical portrait of his encounter. Included are portraits made at Mikisew Park, The Crystal Cave and NAISA in August 2022.

    Soundportraits with Jørgen Teller - Making Waves

    Soundportraits with Jørgen Teller - Making Waves

    Today’s show is about sound portraits. A sound portrait is like a caricature made from a brief encounter in a public place - only that instead of creating a visual likeness of a person, a musical and sonic one is made. Jørgen Telller from Copenhagen was in residence recently at NAISA and over three days he produced about two dozen "Soundportraits" of persons living in or touring the South River area. Making Waves will share a selection of these portraits and they will be introduced by Jørgen Teller and Host Darren Copeland.

    Jesse Stewart and Matt Edwards of Mixed Metaphors - Making Waves

    Jesse Stewart and Matt Edwards of Mixed Metaphors - Making Waves

    This month on Making Waves includes sound art created in public outdoor spaces and focus on two projects that open up access to the music making process. In the first half host Darren Copeland talks to Jesse Stewart and Matt Edwards of Mixed Metaphors about their approach to interactive art in public settings. They will share their experiences making their latest works Orbits and The Gong Show. In the second half of Making Waves pieces in the NORDIC SoUNDPORTRAITS series of 2012 by Jorgen Teller are presented. These pieces were made in a public setting by Teller through one-on-one interactions with the audience member. Much like a sketch artist may create an impromptu portrait of a person, these pieces do the same using sound and music.
