SOUNDSCAPE presented By Elliot Vaughan


SOUNDSCAPE is a workshop exploring the organic noises of the city and the natural environment, and the designed and composed noises of music and performance.


Join Elliot Vaughan in a wordless soundwalk through the neighbourhood, listening to it as if composed, the trajectory through the streets shaping the musicality. What sounds are there, what do they mean, how do they coexist?


Heading back into the created environment of theatre, makers take responsibility for that soundscape. Pages flicking, chairs scraping, voices, and corduroy ffft fffts become materials to construct a symphony.


Drawing on the fields of acoustics and psycho-acoustics, sound ecology, music, and getting silly, SOUNDSCAPE is a hands-on experiment in listening and soundmaking.


Elliot Vaughan is an experimental composer and performer. He studied and freelanced for fifteen years in Vancouver with some of the academics and artists who founded soundscape studies and soundscape composition.
